Abstract
The Gemini Laser Launch Telescope will reside behind the secondary support structure of the Gemini 8m telescope, where it will expand an incoming sodium laser beam to 450 mm diameter and launch it into the sky, co-axial to the main telescope. The tight space and stringent performance specifications have required some innovative approaches in optical and mechanical design.
