Abstract

A Gaussian beam of single mode fiber laser was changed into a ring-shaped pattern after it was transmitted through the hollow optical fiber. The ring-shaped beam was focused on a plane by an f-. lens and it was scanned by a Galvano-mirror. The spatial profile of laser energy incident on a plane had two peaks at both sides of the scanned linear track. The profile was compared with the result obtained when the Gaussian beam was dithered transversely by an acousto-optic modulator. It is found that hollow optical fiber beam shaper can replace acousto-optic beam dithering device which is employed in a laser induced thermal printing system.
