Subject: Parts to Order 

 

Today, the last of the parts we've decided on were ordered. 

Dmass said they do not have any extra current drivers, nor does Eric Gustafson. Eric said that if we can find a commercial board, I can ask Alex Cole (one of his SURF students) to show me how to put the commercial board into a standard LIGO module. Not sure if we'll do this or not. 

I spent the day finishing up my first progress report for SURF and uploaded it to the ECDL folder on the 40m SVN. Tara wants to look at this before I submit it next week. 

I've also started reading about how to measure the frequency noise, so I can start planning for making measurements when the laser diode arrives. 


To Do:

  • Figure out what to do for a current driver
  • Decide how to measure the frequency noise (read up on this)
  • Figure out how to wire the TEC to the laser diode so everything is ready when parts arrive. Read up a lot online about the theory behind this. 
  • Look for metal boxes to house the ECDL
