Subject: Beat note between "Alberto" NPRO laser and PSL laser 

I measured the beat note between the "Alberto" NPRO laser and the PSL varying the PSL temperature and find the matching NPRO temperature that gave the beat.

I first switched off the FSS loop for the PSL, then I varied its temperature and switched on the loop back.

PSL temperature has been varied starting from 31.88 °C (its starting temperature) down to 23.88 by 1°C step, and then from 31.88 °C up to 36.92 °C, always with a 1°C step.

For each PSL temperature, the NPRO temperature was varied as well, in way to find the temperature to have a beat note between the two.

The trend of the NPRO laser temperature reminds the frequency change of the laser as a function of the crystal temperature continuous tuning.

I made measurements only for the first temperature of the NPRO laser which gave me the beat note. Tomorrow I'm going to find the beat note also for higher frequencies of the NPRO laser.
