Subject: South EOAM calibration for 0.78 mW of output power 

I used the black voltage calibrator to give the south EOAM a DC voltage, and then used the ThorLabs power meter to read off the DC power level before the PBS that used for picking off the RFPD path.

I find the volts-to-watts conversion is (5.93±0.12)×10−6 W/V. This will, of course, change if we change the input power level into the EOAM. I guess if there's a more lasting message here, it's that we've got the orientation of the QWP after the EOAM in a pretty good place, since there's no visible nonlinearity in the attached plot.
