Subject: 35W profile/waist 
The beam output by the 35W in 058 was significantly elliptical (up to a 10% difference in the waist measurements). I used the profile given by the "more gaussian" axis, and found a waist 9.7 cm inside the front of the enclosure, 250 microns in radius. We ended up using this axis to mode match to, but this ellipticity will probably need to be addressed as we try to maximize the power output through the PMC.
