Lasers in Measurement

  • Winston E. Kock
Part of the Optical Physics and Engineering book series (OPEG)

Abstract

Extensive use is being made of the straight-line property of a narrow laser beam for measuring alignment in various applications. The laser’s high frequency coherence has made it useful in applications for high-precision measurements of length, strain, velocities, distance, and even the size of extremely small particulate matter in air or other gases. Other measurement applications include the monitoring of pollutants in the air and noncontact measurements of various products.
