Paper Abstract

An optical bench for developmental testing of chemical laser hard-ware is described. It is specially designed to withstand the vibration and thermal disturbances inherent in this type of laser, and has universal features which enable it to accept a variety of nozzle and mirror sizes. The paper deals with the adaptation of traditional designs to meet new requirements in the areas of bench deflection, adjustable mirror mounts, and remote mirror actuation for closed cavity power measurements. In particular, a noncantilever mount with offset pivot for heavy mirrors is described.
