Is beam shaping the future of laser welding?

Sept. 1, 2019
All-optical-fiber technology provides on-the-fly beam shaping for a variety of industrial welding processes, eliminating bulk optics and laser head changes for improved productivity...
FIGURE 1. Shown at left is the fiber cross-section (top) and refractive index profile (bottom) for a feeding fiber with three guiding regions. Simulations (right) show the beam profile coupled into the guiding regions for different perturbation conditions. The beam homogenizes azimuthally as it propagates in the fiber.
