Paper Abstract

This paper will cover a few of the alignment problems solved by conventional optical tooling techniques at the Los Alamos Meson Physics Facility (LAMPF). The LAMPF accelerator is a large linear proton accelerator used in physics experiments. The alignment techniques and expertise developed on the LAMPF project have been utilized on several other Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory projects including alignment of laser systems, normal physics experiments, machine tools and normal mechanical inspection jobs. The topics to be discussed are conventional optical tooling setups, non-conventional setups, special and/or unique alignment targets and the utilization of an optical tooling dock. The relationship between alignment tolerances, component design, support structure and/or mounting base design and the specific optical tooling setups will be the major theme in the paper.
