**1. **1 First-Order Opto-Mechanical Considerations in High Power Applications

**3. **3 For M2 > 6, use (Geometric) Spot Diameter Approximations

**4. **4 Rules of Thumb for Opto-mechanical Tolerances When Dealing with High Power first order Opto-Mechanical Calculations, need to first look thermal effects on Radius of Curvature, Lens Thickness, and scatter effects due to surface finish calculations. These values are shown with red values.When Dealing with High Power first order Opto-Mechanical Calculations, need to first look thermal effects on Radius of Curvature, Lens Thickness, and scatter effects due to surface finish calculations.

**9. **9 Total Integrated Scatter Measurement For a static surface at a constant temperature, the back scatter can be approximated by TISb.
For a static surface at a constant temperature, the back scatter can be approximated by TISb.

**10. **10 Back Scatter Approximation This will be shown in the Plastic system example. Note scaling laws for wavelengths other than l are provided in references 1a and 1b.
Equations are normalized to the specularly reflected beam (not the incident beam), so TIS can be greater than 1.

**11. **11 U.S. Opto-mechanical design between various disciplines When first order calculations are not enough, need to use software packages as shown above.
For dynamic loads/vibration analysis – use Structures Softwares
For Circularly symmetric optics that needs to be transferred to CAD or Structures, use Zernikes polynomialsWhen first order calculations are not enough, need to use software packages as shown above.

**15. **15 Various Mounting Techniques The z or “sag of a spherical surface” is calculated using the parabolic (k = -1) or circular ( k = 0) approximation. It has many uses. One use is determining lens edge thickness. Note ai is the Zernike coefficient and Zi is the Zernike Polynomial, which is only applicable for Circular pupils.The z or “sag of a spherical surface” is calculated using the parabolic (k = -1) or circular ( k = 0) approximation.
