  4. Since dimensions z1, z2, and z12 are optical pathlengths, care must be taken to correct the physical distances by the optical thickness nt of beam attenuators, which may be used.
  5. This ambiguity could also be removed by determining the wavefront curvature as well as the Gaussian beam radius at a single station.
