The experimental performance of beam smoothing by combined one-dimensional (1D) spectral dispersion and lens array (LA) technology is presented, as applied in the ninth beam of SG-II. Using 3\omega spectral dispersion with a bandwidth of 270 GHz and a line dispersion that is 24.9 times the beam's diffraction-limited width decreases the focal spot non-uniformity of 80% energy concentration from 46% to 17%. The multiple-beam interference properties of the LA are theoretically and experimentally validated by spatial power spectral density analysis. Peak-spectra suppression ratios of 20 and 10 dB are achieved in the dispersion and orthogonal directions, respectively.
