I am considering to have 3 to 6 motorized optical mounts at the PSL and end tables for remote beam steering.
Was there any issue on the PI 3-axis PZT on the PSL?
Why was it disabled (even before the PSL upgrade)?
Do we need two mount at a place? Or we do have one instead?
- Comparing the distance of the steering mirrors and that from the steering mirror to the cavity waist, induced shift
is mostly cancelled by angle adjustemnts of a either of the mounts.
i.e. Induced misalignments by the steering mirrors are nearly degenerated.
We need to move two steering mirrors only for the initial installation, but any drift felt by a cavity can be compensated by a single mirror.
Do we like PI-style 2 or 3 axis PZT mount with analog inputs on the HV amp?
Or do we like "Newport Agilis" style controller with USB connection?
