Status of the AS-port auxiliary laser injection

  • Auxiliary laser with AOM setup exists, first order diffracted beam is coupled into fiber that leads to the AS table.
  • There is a post-PMC picked-off beam available that is currently just dumped (see picture). I want to use it for a beat note with the auxiliary laser pre-AOM so we can phaselock the lasers and then fast-switch the phaselocked light on and off.
  • I was going to use the ET3010 PD for the beat note unless someone else has plans for it.
  • I obtained a fixed triple-aspheric-lens collimator which is supposed to have a very small M^2 value for the collimation on the AS table. I still have the PSL-lab beam profiler and will measure its output mode.
  • Second attached picture shows the space on the AS table that we have for mode-matching into the IFO. Need to figure out the desired mode and how to merge the beams best.
