Paper Abstract

The Helium Neon laser operating at 633 nm has taken its place as a custom or off-the-shelf component in the industrial environment. It is low cost, rugged and reliable. Some of the peculiar properties of Helium Neon lasers are discussed with emphasis on the consid-erations necessary to specify and use the lasers routinely. The topics covered are: beam properties, electrical characteristics, noise, mechanical requirements and lifetime.
