Designed for accuracy reliability and ease of use the guidestar ii system is the answer to laser beam drift correction for the most demanding laser applications.
Laser beam pointing stabilization.
Beam pointing fluctuations analyzing beam positing fluctuations.
There are actually two components to laser pointing and laser pointing stability linear and angular which combine to affect the beam s position.
Pointing and profile information while dedicated software implements a user friendly intelligent control algorithm that keeps the beam s four degrees of freedom precisely.
Lockheed martin breakthroughs are boosting the performance of laser weapon systems for ground air and sea platforms while shrinking their size weight and power consumption.
Gibson and tsu chin tsao abstract this paper pr esents an investigation of the contr ol pr oblem of aiming a laser beam under dynamic disturbances using light intensity for feedback.
Laser beam pointing stabilization system laser optics labview automation imaging fluctuations of the laser pointing is a common problem in laser experiments.
Laser power frequency beam pointing and beam quality were simultaneously stabilized using different active and passive schemes.
Laser beam p ointing and stabilization by intensity f eedback contr ol n estor o.
The linear component comes from the horizontal and vertical motion of the laser perpendicular to the axis of propagation.
With the powerful rp resonator software one can calculate how misalignments of mirrors cause beam pointing deviations.
They cause a temporal variation of the laser energy as well as reducing the coupling efficiency between the amplifier states.
Call this x and y.
It is hard to use conventional active beam pointing stabilization techniques based on closed loop feedback for a single shot or low repetition rate laser system.
Because high power laser system always operates at a low repetition it is effective too ensure the beam pointing stability by a passive technique such as using a stable mechanical.
This includes spectral beam combining adaptive optics precision pointing line of sight stabilization and air flow control.
Ask rp photonics for advice on the origin of beam pointing fluctuations and their reduction with suitable laser designs or with feedback stabilization.
Encyclopedia letter b beam pointing fluctuations.
Together the control electronics a combined angle and position detector and two active mirrors form a feedback loop which suppresses thermal drifts as well as fast fluctuations.
The laser shutter system beamblock is designed for the combination with the beam stabilization system but can also be used independently.
