An adjustable platform in two orthogonal directions for the angular alignment of the axis of a solid state laser diode. The platform carries the laser diode at its center and is attached to a base plate at three points. Two attachment points are adjustable and provide for fine angular adjustments by changing the separation of the base plate and platform. The third attachment point provides for a fixed separation between base plate and platform and also preloads the tension on the adjustable attachments. The geometric relationship of the attachment points provides for the orthogonality and independence of the angular adjustments.
