Paper Abstract

In high magnification systems laser speckle limits the resolution of laser illuminated targets. We have developed a broad bandwidth laser illuminator which substantially reduces the speckle. This laser has been incorporated with intensified camera technology and suitable lensing to provide a microscope system with good resolution over a 75-mm diameter image. The microscope currently has a 2-ns exposure onto film with magnification adjustable between 5 X and 50 X .*
