Abstract

Three different commonly used methods of measuring the length and fan angle of a light line or a light fan produced by a laser line generator were analyzed, tested, and compared. One measurement method is proposed as the standard method, and the resultant 1/e2 intensity fan angle is proposed as the standard parameter to describe the line generator.
