Optical measurements partially overlap laser beam characterization, so some of the instruments introduced in this chapter can also be used to characterize laser beams. For example, Shack–Hartmann wavefront sensors can be used to characterize laser beam wavefronts. Scanning Fabry–Pérot interferometers can be used to analyze the laser beam spectrum.
