Abstract
Method of homogenization of CO2 laser heating by means of metal gauze is researched theoretically and experimentally. Distribution of light-field of expanded beam passing through metal gauze was numerically calculated with diffractive optical theory and the conclusion is that method is effective, with comparing the results to the situation without metal gauze. Experimentally, using the 30W DC discharge laser as source and enlarging beam by concave lens, with and without metal gauze, beam intensity distributions in thermal paper were compared, meanwhile the experiments based on thermal imager were performed. The experimental result was compatible with theoretical calculation, and all these show that the homogeneity of CO2 laser heating could be enhanced by metal gauze.
