Abstract
Low-frequency narrow pulse infrared laser are widely used in laser ranging equipments, its laser spot is hard to capture, the system’s precision of collimation measure and control are decided by the performance of optical axes parallelism. The automatic test technology of optical axes parallelism for low-frequency narrow pulse laser is discussed in hardware and software, in the aspect of hardware, through lattice up-conversion board the nanosecond infrared laser is converted into millisecond visible laser which can be detected by normal CCD, the CCD capture system in defocus mode can not only protect CCD but also enhance the test precision; In the aspect of software, the algorithms of image process is adopted to control CCD’s defocus and extract the parameters of crosshair and laser spot, such as: the DCT transformation with region selected, recover blurred image, hybrid filter, hough transformation of line and ellipse detection. Finally the automatic test of optical axes parallelism is realized, the experiments show that the precision of optical axes parallelism is 0.05mrad.
