Subject: QPD/ECDL Progress 

I built the summing/subtracting circuit on the breadboard, and hooked this up with one of the other QPDs I found (image of setup attached). I wasn't able to get this to read the correct signals when testing with a laser pointer after a couple of hours of troubleshooting... I will hopefully get this working in the next day or 2...

I'm going to read up on ECDL stuff for Tara tonight and hopefully figure out what sort of laser diode we should purchase, since I'm meeting with Tara tomorrow. experimenting
