Abstract
The demand for uniform intensity distribution is rising rapidly in the field of thermal processing. In this study we propose beam homogenizers with aspheric lenses or diffractive optical elements (DOE) that can convert a non-uniform Gaussian distribution into a top-hat-shaped uniform intensity distribution. The circular beam homogenizer consists of two aspheric lenses. And we propose several types of beam homogenizer, namely, rectangular and linear using DOE technology. Especially, we present a spot array generation homogenizer that can anneal several points simultaneously. This paper suggests possibilities of advance laser optics for new types of laser material processing.
