Orthogonally acting phase-locked loops operating at distinct, well-separated dither frequencies are used to automatically align (maximize output power) an argon ion pump laser, its pointing into a ring dye laser, and optimize a dye laser beam coupling into a single mode fiber of 4 micron core diameter. Such a system of feedback loops or combination of them is an ATOM (Alignment Through Orthogonal Maxima).
