Subject: PD TEC driver / A2P6 aligned / Lens moved 

== Currently, A2P6 is aligned ==

1) I've brought another TEC driver fro the PD temp control. This unit was borrowed from the 2um ECDL setup. Eventually, we need to return this to ECDL. (Attachment 1)
The PID loop of the TEC control works. But it is not well optimized yet. If you change the target temp too quickly, the TEC out seemed oscillating. Watch the TEC out carefully and change the temp setpoint slowly.
So far I have tried to cool the thermister up to 30kOhm (~232K) and I_TEC was 0.33A.
I did not try further. I felt it was better to cool the PD base for further trial.

2) A part of the alignment study, the beam is aligned to A2P6. Also, the lens position was investigated, and I decided to move the lens ~1 inch away from the window.  (Attachment 2)
    In fact, this allowed us to insert the power meter between the lens and the window.
