# A common optical instrument in a laser laboratory is a beam expander. one type of beam expander is shown in FIGURE P.a. For what lens spacing d does a parallel laser beam exit fromthe right?b. What is the width of the exiting laser beam?

a. Lens spacing d does a parallel laser beam exit from the right .

b. The width of the exiting laser beam is .

See the step by step solution

## part(a) Step 1: Given information

We need to find what lens spacing d does a parallel laser beam exit from the right.

## part(a) Step 2: Explanation

We find this distance as the sum of the focal length of the first lens and the focal length of the second lens:

## part (b) step 1: Given Information

We need to find the width of the exiting laser beam.

## part (b) step 2: Simplification

let us find width ,

Here, is the width of the first lens, is the width of the second lens, is the focal length of first lens and second lens.
