keyword=Adjustment of Q-wave plates for Longitudinal Lasers
The first and second Q-wave plates were sitting at 85 and 56 degrees
(representing the 18 degrees phase shift of 3'' mirror). During the
access, we tuned the Q-wave plates to maximum the laser absorption
spectrum (assuming higher the laser polarization, higher the spectrum).
We finally got 76 and 61 degrees of two Q-wave plates, this means that
the phase shift of 6'' mirror is about 32 degrees.
This 14 degrees difference in the phase shift will drop our laser
polarization to only 84%. Hopefully, this adjustment will increase our
Another longitudinal pumping up started at random target location...
