Abstract
One of the key issues in the development of space-based lasers is the optimization (minimization) of output beam quality and jitter. This paper describes an experiment that identifies and quantifies the sources of jitter and vibration in the output beam of a highly complex annular resonator using a technique involving correlation of accelerometer measurements of mirror motion to spatial and temporal aberrations in the output beam.
