Paper Abstract

An alignment system is being developed to align the feedback leg of a high energy laser resonator. The system uses a low energy visible laser, and a two axis position detector to compare the relative tilt of two alignment reference surfaces at either end of the feedback leg. Preliminary tests of the system in the lab have demonstrated subarcsecond alignment capability.
