Collimated Beams

Laser beams with weak divergence.

A collimated beam of Light is a beam which has a low beam divergence, SO that the Beam Radius does not undergo significant changes within moderate propagation distances. In the simple case of Gaussian beams, this means that the Rayleigh Length must be long compared with the envisaged propagation distance.
