Subject: X endtable work scheduled tomorrow 

The X end fiber setup will be put together tomorrow morning. Let me know if there are any concerns.

Quote:

It is certain that we have space issues at the X end that has been preventing us from sticking in a lens to couple light into the fiber. 

The only way out is to install a platform on the table where we can mount the lens. I have attached the a photo of how things look like at the X end (attachment 1) and also a drawing of the platform that which can hold the lens (attachment 2). Additional support to the raised platform will be added depending on how much space we can clear up on the table by moving the clamping forks of the doubler.
Steve and I have been able to gather parts that can be put together into something similar to what is shown in the drawing. 

Proposed modifications to the X end table:

1. The side panels of the table enclosure will come out while putting in the new platform.

2. The clamping forks for the doubling crystal will be moved.

Let me know of any concerns about the proposed solution.
