Abstract

New optical combinations of axicons and axicons with spherical mirrors and lenses suitable for laser machining are presented. Linear and annular focusing, coaxially and radially to the laser beam, are possible. Most combinations allow continuous adjustment of exit beam parameters, focal line length, focal ring diameter, and magnification, by varying the relative position of one of the axicons. Potential new laser applications are also discussed in relation to these optical devices.
