dc.description.abstract In this paper the researchers present results on improved paint stripping performance with an intra-cavity generated Flattened Gaussian Beam (FGB). A resonator with suitable diffractive optical elements was designed in order to produce a single mode flat–top like laser beam as the output. The design was implemented in a TEA CO2 laser outputting more than 5 J per pulse in the desired mode. The FGB showed improved performance in a paint stripping application due to its uniformity of intensity, and high energy extraction from the cavity. en
