[Jenne, Kevin, Kiwamu]
We moved some optics in preparation for measuring the MC mode after the first MMT curved optic, RoC -5m.
Kevin and I found the box of DLC (sp?) mounts with the 2" Y1-45P optics in the clean tupperware boxes. We removed one of the Y1-45P's, and replaced it with the MMT1 -5m optic, which was baked several weeks ago. We left the Y1-45P on the cleanroom table next to where the MMT optics are. We placed this MMT mirror in the place it belongs, according to Koji's table layout of the BS table.
We drag wiped one of the other Y1-45P's that was in the box since it was dirty, and then placed the optic on the IOO table, on the edge closest to the BS table, with the HR side facing the BS table, so that the beam reflected off the curved mirror is reflected back in the direction of the BS table. This was aligned so the beam hits the same PZT mirror we were using last time, to get the beam out of the BS chamber door. We left a razor dump on the edge of the BS table, by the door, which will need to be removed before actual measurements can take place.
Rana pointed out that the anticipated mode calculation should be modified to include the index of refraction of the crystals in the Faraday, and the polarizers in the Faraday. This may affect where we should put MMT1, and so this should be completed before round 2 measurements are taken, so that we can move MMT1.
Also, the optics are in place now, and the beam is going out the BS chamber door, but we have not yet measured distances (design distances quoted on the MMT wiki page), and confirmed that everything is in the right place. So there is a bit more work required before beginning to measure round 2.
Note: While I was poking around on the BS table, I had to move several optics so that we could fit MMT1 in the correct place. When preparing to move these optics, I found 2 or 3 that were totally unclamped. This seems really bad, especially for tall skinny things which can fall over if we have an earthquake. Even if something is in place temporarily, please clamp it down.
