Subject: optics setup 
  • aligned beam along the NS axis using two irises and the existing 2x f=100 lenses from the E path.
    • HWP->steering mirror-> 90-10 BS -> iris -> lens -> lens -> iris -> PD
    • all transmitted beams dumped
  • Mounted a 1'' x 1m FL Si mirror in a polaris mount. Made a ring cavity with that and 2x mirrors coated for 45 deg.


Can anyone tell me the specs / history of some of the custom optics in cryo? I'm mounting the 1m Coastline mirror and will start with that in the PSOMA cavity.

  • Laseroptik 1'' mirrors. Batch # 19028Kel. Part(?) numbers L-13997, L-13998. (these are in red boxes cases w clear lid)
  • Coastline Optics 1.0''x0.25'' FS substrates. Coated for 1550nm at 45 degrees. (these are in stacks cylindrical clear cases, and include some witness and rejected samples)
  • Coastline optics 1'' silicon substrate, 1 meter focal length. SN 1.0-Si-1.0M
  • Photon Laseroptik 1'' FS substrates (~50), labeled 75S308926. Also labeled with a wedge angle or what looks like a focal length (no unit)
  • Two stacks from Gooch & Housego, taped in bubble wrap with the data sheet. These are coated for 1550nm, transmission ~1% S and ~5% P at 45 deg.
