In pursuit of a low back scattering, high power beam dump we looked at materials such:
polished copper, polished aluminum, diamond cut aluminum, variety of polished & heat treated stainless steel and shades of black glasses.
Black glass is ideal at low power. Superpolished SS 304 #8 is the only material that measures close to bg
We are still looking for a conductive low back scattering material that would be ideal for a good high power beam trap.
Black glass-shade 12, ss304 superpolished #8 and white paper-B98-24lbs back scattering were compared at 1064 nm
Atm 1: data plot numbers from front panel of SR830 display,
sensitivity: 1x1 mV for bg and ss
1x1 V for wp
Atm 2: drawing of measurement set up
Atm 3: SR830 lock.amp settings
Atm 4: view from steering mirror
Atm 5: view from black glass trap
Atm 6: white paper
