We have developed a new design of advanced optics for processing high-power laser material. We introduce the concept of DOE for high power CO2 lasers. The superior functionality of DOE means that it could become the new standard in optics for next generation devices. Here we describe the design of our DOE technology using scalar theory and micro fabrication using photolithography and RIE. We also present results of our ZnSe-DOE technology, mainly focusing on a novel spot-array generator.
