Abstract

Diffractive optical elements have an important role to play in the provision of process adapted beam shaping for laser-materials processing applications. The design techniques and dominant methods of fabrication are described for intra-cavity and external beam shaping diffractive elements fabricated in a variety of dielectric and metallic materials for use with a wide range of laser sources. Theoretical and experimental examples are given in each section.
