Subject: Mode Shape of the fiber laser 

 I made a rough measurement of the mode shape of the laser used in the fiber setup.  I need to go back in to get more points and estimate the error, but to first approximation the beam waist is about 1550 microns.  The data I was able to take is included below (the x axis is in cm, the y in microns), but I will go back and take more data tomorrow morning.
