The process of conveying a laser beam from the laser to the point at which the beam is to be applied is beam delivery, the subject of this section. Delivery may be either by conventional optics in free space (Chapter 27), or in waveguides (Chapter 28). In either case, the point of delivery must be controllable and accurately defined in space, either statically or dynamically—hence the related topics of positioning and scanning, the subjects of Chapter 29.
