An Introduction to Diode Lasers for Materials Processing
Low-power diode lasers are a well established technology, used extensively in products such as DVD players, computer optical drives, fiber-optic telecommunications and even laser pointers. While these commonly encountered low power diode lasers typically only provide a few milliwatts of output, diode laser systems are available with power levels in the multi-kilowatt range. These types of diode lasers are currently employed in a number of different materials processing applications; the basic...

Hollow Silica Waveguides for Mid-Infrared Power Transmission and Spectroscopy
Applications in the Mid-Infrared often require a flexible conduit for transmitting light from source to destination. Hollow Silica Waveguides with an internal Ag/AgI dielectric reflective layer optimized for maximum transmission between 2.5µm and 15µm have been used successfully for applications such as Erbium YAG and CO2 laser power transmission for industrial and medical applications. In addition the waveguides are used as long path flow cells for IR spectroscopy. In the following paper,...

Heat Treating with High Power Diode Lasers
CO2 lasers have been used to case harden metal products for decades, but their low reliability and electical conversion efficiency makes them less than ideal for such heat treating tasks. High-powered laser diode lasers overcome the disadvantages of CO2 lasers. This article reviews the basic of laser-based heat treating and its optimum uses, and compares CO2 to diode lasers.
