Subject: Photodiode testing recovery status 

Quick update, more detailed update to follow.

  • Laser is working
  • Photodiode sweep with the Keithley shows a sensible dark Current v Voltage plot (when laser is off) - indicating that PD wiring is still intact
  • Laser was aligned onto photodiode (although it took a while aligning to find the signal)
  • Ran a sweep with the Keithley and the laser on - saw another sensible bright Current v Voltage plot (more current than in the dark case)
  • DAQ control still works
  • DAC output is directly providing (unfiltered) 200mV bias

Still to do:

  • Get the SR785 plugged back in
  • Get an SR560 inserted between DAC output and PD bias to low pass filter
  • Investigate why the laser current set point is so noisy
  • Sort out RTD situation inside the chamber
  • Miscellaneous stuff
