Here is the proposed RoC measurement setup. Koji tells me that this is referred to as "Anderson's method".
We would like to use a linear cavity to measure the RoC of the curved mirrors independently (before forming the ring cavity), since the degeneracy
of HOMs will make the fitting easier.

Yesterday I measured the thickness of the PZTs in order to get an idea how much the PZTs are wedged.
For each PZT, the thickness at six points along the ring was measured with a micrometer gauge. 
The orientation of the PZT was recognized by the wire direction and a black marking to indicate the polarity.

The items:

- Retroreflector (corner cube)
Entry  Fri Jan 18 13:25:17 2013, Koji, Optics, Configuration, Autocollimator calibration autocollimator_calibration.pdf
An autocollimator (AC) should show (0,0) if a retroreflector is placed in front of the AC.
However, the AC may have an offset. Also the retroreflector may not reflect the beam back with an exact parallelism.
To calibrate these two errors, the autocollimator is calibrated. The retroreflector was rotated by 0, 90, 180, 270 deg
Entry  Sat Jan 19 20:47:41 2013, Koji, Optics, Characterization, Wedge measurement with the autocollimator autocollimator_wedge_measurement.pdf
The wedge angle of the prism "A1" was measured with the autocollimator (AC).
The range of the AC is 40 arcmin. This means that the mirror tilt of 40arcmin can be measured with this AC.
This is just barely enough to detect the front side reflection and the back side reflection.
