Abstract : The patent relates to a marker for a high powered laser cutting beam having a high intensity visible light source with apparatus for optically converting the solid beam from the light source to a hollow annular beam. A mirror having an aperture for passing the laser beam is positioned around the laser beam to direct the annular beam along a path surrounding and parallel to the laser beam to provide a visible marker on a work piece for indicating the position of the laser beam.
