Paper Abstract

A design approach for an alignment system for an unstable resonator is presented. A description of the Air Force airborne gas-dynamic laser resonator is followed by the results of a paraxial ray trace, including aperture stops, of the images used in the alignment method. An analysis of these results led to the design of the resonator alignment system.
