Summary : 

Diamond materials can be cut and machined with PicoSpark laser with excellent quality and accuracy.
The angles are sharp and well-defined and there is no measurable roughness increase for the process parts. There is no heat-affected-zone at all either
The ablation efficiency is not optimized but still reasonable for such hard materials (close to 0.025mm3 per minute for PCD).
