Paper Abstract

To view and align Shiva laser targets, two new telemicroscopic instruments integral with TV camera and HeNe laser illuminator have been designed. The common requirement of both instruments is the capability of imaging two objects of different sizes on a TV screen: the large surrogate target (5 mm diameter) and the laser fusion target (0.250 mm diameter) with the same resolution (better than 7 μm). Both instruments have an optical relay which images the targets on a fixed reference reticle; the object is to center each target on the reticle. One of the instruments reimages the reticle plane onto the TV detector using a zoom arrangement. This instrument translates the TV,camera-zoom assembly in three axes and is thereby capable of exploring an object-space volume of 1 cm3. In the other instrument, the reticle plane is reimaged by a zoom lens and this enlarged image is relayed to the TV detector by a cluster of five lenses. Four lateral lenses image the periphery of the surrogate target and the reticle for coincidence. The central objective images the center of the reticle and the fusion target when it is centered.
