Subject: Mode Matching/Lock 
I got a solution for mode matching the 35W to the PMC with 2 100mm (focal length) lenses. I abandoned this since they were deemed too fast by Stefan, and were seperated by ~1 focal length. We ended up using a 1m and .5m lens (all lenses from the newport kit in 058). My code choked on this solution and needs some bugs ironed out (will attach afterwards), so we used Stefan's.

We then managed to get a 00 lock, at a somewhat meager power throughput. Pictures of the layout below:
