Paper Abstract

A laser beam quality diagnostic has been developed for making up to 500 measurements per second in the 1-to 5-μm spectral range. The primary sensors are a PtSi detector array and a separate PtSi total power detector. The computer-driven diagnostic includes a beam stabilization servo and focus scanning device for finding the best laser focus.
