Paper Abstract

Based on the propagation properties of Gaussian beams, a new scheme for an instrument for collimating and expanding (ICE) Gaussian beams for underwater laser imaging systems is proposed, as well as a method for its optimal design. The aberration of a Gaussian beam passing through the ICE is calculated approximately. A design example of the aligning system for the underwater laser imaging system with synchronous scanning is presented.
