Subject: SOS Sapphire Prism design 

Summary:

  • SOS solidworks model is nearly complete
    • Having trouble with the design of the sensor/actuator head assembly and the lower clamps
  • After Gautam's suggestion, installed Abaqus on computer. Teaching it to myself to eventually do FEM analysis and find resonant frequency of the system
    • Goal is to replicate frequency listed in the SOS documents to confirm accuracy of computer model, then replace guide rods with sapphire prisms and change geometry to get same results

 

Questions:

  • How accurate do the details (like fillet, chamfer, placement of little vent holes), and material of the different SOS parts need to be in the model?
  • If I could get pictures of the lower mirror clamp (document D960008), it would be helpful in making solidworks model. Document is unclear. Same for sensor/actuator head assembly.
