Title: ATHERMALIZED PERMANENT-ALIGNMENT OPTICAL-ELEMENT MOUNT
Abstract:
A mounting fixture for mounting an optical element on a base-plate has spaced-apart parallel legs attachable by brackets to the base-plate and a mounting platform attached to the legs. The platform can be heated by a removable heater. The optical element is held in a mounting tab attached to the platform by a solder-pad. Heating the platform softens the solder- pad allowing the tab and the element to be aligned. Removing the heat allows the pad to harden to complete the attachment and retain the alignment of the element on the mount.
