Abstract

An optical calibration source for free-space systems with large beams is presented. It produces a 2 W, 370  mm beam tunable from 15451570  nm with a wavefront error of <λ/15 peak to valley and <0.013λ rms at 1550  nm, power stability of <±0.02  dB, arbitrarily selected polarization, and polarization stability of <±1°/h in orientation and <±0.02/h in ellipticity.
