Abstract
In typical optical sensor setups for CO2 laser material processing scraper mirrors or beam selectors (ZnSe mirrors) are used to allow sensor positions which have a coaxial path for both the laser beam and the monitored visible or near- infrared signal. Calculations and experiments have shown a vital influence of the focusing element for the laser beam on the measured signal. Critical topics are the distance between focusing element and monitored process, as well as the dependence of focal length on wavelength.
