Paper Abstract

Entire optical benches can now be put together utilizing diamond-turned optical compo-nents. Such diagnostic systems are used for FLIR-to-laser boresight measurement, FLIR test, and TV test. These systems even have reference flats at various points in the system to facilitate automatic reference boresight alignment. There are also applications where far-field performance of laser systems is imperative, such as laser rangefinder/designators and countermeasure systems. It is the intent of this paper to compare the farfield beam divergence and spatial profile of a collimated laser beam measured with a compact diamond-turned collimator to the farfield beam divergence and spatial profile measured with a high quality glass parabolic mirror.
