5. Scientists of the Samara National Research University and their colleagues from other Russian scientific organizations created samples of diamond optical elements, which allow focusing the radiation of powerful technological CO2 lasers for processing materials in industry with high efficiency. Using the new technology, specialists have already created several samples of optical elements. In future, they plan to develop and explore elements with more complex functionality.
