    My unlce does a lot of work similar to that, he just attended a welding conference in Chicago and brought back a few really cool laser cut metal samples along with a few water jet cut samples. Its pretty neat stuff.

    It diverges very quickly because it is focused. I believe there is a grid that is sacrificial and then a reflective metal plate.
