Laser based material processing applications proliferate as high quality laser sources increase in power and beam quality while they decrease in cost and complexity. Understanding the performance characteristics of these tools becomes increasingly important as boundaries are broken and ever more is expected of them.
Additive manufacturing as well as direct application of Nd:YAG and fiber lasers require stable, well understood laser sources so that the beam that is delivered is the one that has been proven to provide quality outcome.
Traditional or Rayleigh scatter based beam diagnostics must be employed to assure consistency in the laser's performance. Currently available diagnostic tools permit these performance characteristics to be constantly monitored thus assuring consistent outcome, zero scrap and no surprises.
