Abstract
Diamond turning techniques for high power laser optics were developed during the 70s and 80s as the alternative to conventional polishing of optical surfaces. In principle there are two main areas of applications for diamond tooled high power CO2 laser optics: (1) Aspheric transmissive ZnSe-/Ge-lenses for focussing at very short focal lengths or parabolic Cu- surfaces for laser welding heads. (2) Cu-surfaces for use as extracavity and intracavity beam bending mirrors. In this presentation we concentrate on item two.
