The recently developed cauability to diamond turn ZnSe, has led to a number of useful optical components for high power CO2 lasers which were not previously available on a cost effective basis. For example, aspheric lenses can provide tighter focused spots; axicons can convert solid beams to donut shaped beams and vice-versa, or can be used as beam integrators; multifaceted prisms and pyramids can easily divide a beam into several parallel beams. This paper will explain the working principles of these diamond-turned optics and give examples of material processing applications.
