Paper Abstract

This paper will describe the optical design considerations associated with the development of the first known use of the laser in a production shop. One of the problems encountered in taking the laser out of the laboratory and into the shop is to provide a suitable viewing system (unless the application is simple enough to allow automatic control. It can be shown that closed circuit television offers many advantages over alternate approaches. For monitoring the laser operation the optical design criteria for operation and safety will be developed, and the television system which was used on the production laser machine will be described in detail.
