Paper Abstract

The performance of a high power laser in material processing is strongly dependent on the laser beam intensity distribution. In particular, the uniformity of the beam intensity during laser transformation hardening is a critical factor in the success of the process. The results of tests on a new class of beam-integrating infrared optics used in the transformation hardening process are presented here. These complex, multi-faceted lenses have been manufactured, assembled in laser processing systems, and tested in optical experiments that correlate laser beam characteristics, integrator performance, and successful process completion.
