 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.

 

It's also nice to put the curve that you're fitting with, the fitting parameters, and to extend the plotted curve to show the waist itself
