Laser Tracker Test Facility at SLAC - Progress Report

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Physics experiments at SLAC require high accuracy positioning, e. g. 100 {micro}m over a distance of 150 m or 25 {micro}m in a 10 x 10 x 3 meter volume. Laser Tracker measurement systems have become one of the most important tools for achieving these accuracies when mapping components. In order to improve and get a better understanding of laser tracker measurement tolerances we extended our laboratory with a rotary calibration table (Kugler GmbH) providing an accuracy of better than 0.2 arcsec. This paper gives an overview of the calibration table and its evaluation. Results of tests on two of ... continued below

Results of tests on two of our Laser Trackers utilizing the new rotary table as well as the SLAC interferometer bench are presented.
