Paper Abstract

High security printing as well as ultra high precision engraving need laser resonators with very stable laser beams (600 - 800W) especially in combination with AOMs. Based upon a unique carbon fiber structure - stable within the sub-micrometer range - a new resonator has been developed, accompanied by most recent thermo-mechanical FEM calculations. The resulting beam is evaluated on an automated optical bench allowing to optimize the complete beam path with collimators and AOM. Synchronous on-line evaluation with PyroCams and thus knowledge about how to minimize distortions within the nonlinear elements is presented in this paper.
