Abstract

This apparatus is described to assist in the alignment of an optical beam to a light modulator. All adjustments are relative and do not require precision or absolute measurements. The apparatus is particularly useful when aligning optical systems in which a modulator is a component. With the aid of this apparatus, interchange-ability of the modulator, the laser and other components can be made without extensive realignment and without the use of highly trained personnel.
