Subject: scanning ACav 

I'm scanning the laser to align ACav. It's a long day of adjusting 4 knobs and 1 lens (and one periscope for a while.) 

I see higher order TEM modes at the back of the cavity, but still cannot see TEM 00 yet.

I saw TEM 00 and trying to minimize the reflected power on the PD.

I just realize that the beam path is very close to the edge of the hole (see attached.) Part of the beam might be clipped.

I'll check that with IR viewer tomorrow.

The value for Voltage Calibrator is 6.17 V.
