Paper Abstract

Beam expander optical and structural characteristics can be utilized to desensitize line of sight (LOS) jitter. The overall LOS jitter for a given disturbance spectrum is largely dependent on the optical alignment sensitivity and the resonance mode shapes of the beam expander. By properly selecting the beam expander configuration design, "nodes" can be generated in terms of the LOS where no, or minimum, participation can be expected for certain frequency bands. By adopting such a design approach, the overall LOS jitter for a given disturbance can be reduced significantly.
