Paper Abstract

Since the commercial introduction of the gas Laser in the early 1960's, various industries (not including pure scientific research) have attempted to adopt the coherent light source as a standard tool. By far, the most successful attempt to date has been the use of the low powered He-Ne Laser in the construction industry for alignment purposes. The properties of the He-Ne Laser makes it ideal for the construction industry: Relative Low Cost High Single-Mode Stability Portability--low input power requirement from 12 VDC source Ruggedness of Design of Internal Mirror Plasma Tube In turn, the construction industry needs are ideal for low-powered He-Ne Lasers: Stable, Long Distance Reference Line Reference Line Not Requiring Operator Improved Accuracy Improved Efficiency
