    Abstract

    Influence of the laser beam intensity distribution spatial shaping on laser cutting was studied. Spatial shaping of CW fibre laser beam was done using liquid cooled liquid crystal on silicon spatial light modulator (Lcos-SLM). As result it was seen that even a simple shaping of intensity distribution of the Gaussian beam can enhance the cutting parameters.
