Subject: North EOAM: broken? 

Last week I talked to an engineer at Newport, and he agreed that the discrepancy (1 µW/V versus 30 µW/V) seemed unusual. Tara and I are sending this EOAM back to Newport for inspection; it should ship out today. We await Newport's diagnosis with bated breath.

I also mentioned to Newport that this EOAM has a minor annoyance with the two hex screws on the bottom of the case: the screw heads jut out slightly from the case rather than sitting inside the countersink (didn't think to take a picture, sorry). This causes the EOAM to have a slight roll when sitting on its kinematic mount. Tara was able to add a washer to the 1/4-20 screw holding the EOAM in order to mostly cancel this roll, but it would be nice to not have to deal with it in the first place.
