Paper Abstract

The collimation tester is one of the most simple devices available for examining optical wavefronts. Based on a shearing interferometer, its sensitivity can be adjusted as required. Methods of use in collimating laser beams will be described, in addition to other applications involving planarity. Versatility in wavelength coverage will be discussed.
