Abstract: The studies carried out on an adaptive beam delivery system for industrial applications are here reviewed. Our control system is based on extracting a low-power copy from the high power beam and performing beam parameters measurements on this secondary beam. For such a reason, particular attention has been devoted to the development and test of the high power beam sampler. Optical diagnostics performed on the deformable feed-back mirror is also presented here.
