Quadrant detector was installed in the same position relative to the gravity vector

U1, U2, U3, U4- signal from photodiodes U= U1+ U2+ U3+ U4

- calibration curves were determined in 4 directions- Up, Down, Left, Right
- then they were paired into the Horizontal and Vertical directions

- An averaged calibration curve was used for the measurements of the positions of the centers of the ends of measured tube T

The following sources influence on the LRL measurement accuracy:

- Inaccurate mechanical setting of the laser beam reference points
with respect to the ends of the reference pipes.

- Fluctuation of refractive index of the air in which the laser beam propagates.
- Distortion of the laser beam shape by the collimation system.
- Accuracy of the calibration measurement system.
- Perpendicularity of the QPr with respect to the laser beam during the measurement.

Comparison of the Laser and Total Station measurements

- Two series of measurements (Set 1, Set 3) have been available in which the position of the pipe T relative to the LRL has been chosen to be misaligned by d ≤ 0.5 mm corresponding to the linear portion of the calibration curve and one series of measurements (Set 2) with d ≥ 0.5 mm
- In the Set 1 and Set 3 data the average difference is = −0.07 mm with a spread of individual differences in the interval from −0.15 to 0.06 mm (σ=0.08mm)
- In the Set 2 data the values are = 0.24 mm with a spread of individual differences in the interval from −0.41 to 0.37 mm (σ=0.38mm)

- An original method for precision measurements when alignment of beam pipe ends on a reference axis has been proposed and tested. The test measurements have been performed using jointly the LRL in a 2D local coordinate system and a Total Station survey instrument in a global 3D coordinate system. The fiducial marks at the pipe ends have been measured with both instrumentations. A transformation to a common coordinate system has been applied to allow the comparison of the results.
- The results of the measurements coincide to an accuracy of approximately ±100 µm in the directions perpendicular to a common reference line close to the middle of a 50m line.
- The test shows that the proposed LRL system is a promising method for the on-line positioningand monitoring of 2D coordinates of fiducial marks. It could be used for highly precise alignment of equipments linearly distributed.
- The tested system could be improved using the innovative laser-based metrological techniques that employ the phenomena of increased stability of the laser beam position in the air when it propagates in a pipe as it works as a three-dimensional acoustic resonator with standing sound waves could be integrated in the setup. This property is the physical basis for the development of a measurement technique with a significant gain in attainable accuracy.
