Paper Abstract

In order to characterise the laser mirrors, their scattering factor is a useful parameter in the present acticle is described a model of simple design to measure the scattering factor of the laser mirrors for the wavelength of laser radiation. The proposed model of the design is in the form of a dual beam ratio recording system, employing single detector and works on the principle of modulation radiometry In the design provision has been made to minimise the systematic errors such as effect of polarisation because of use of optical components, source fluctuations asymmetry in the paths of the sample and reference beams etc, occuring. during the measurements. The design is equally applicable to measure the scattering factor of the polished glass blanks of the laser mirrors.
