Laser - Overview

The UV laser system is an encloded class 4 UV laser from Continuum (Surelite I-10) which emits a 266nm pulsed laser of 40mJ/5ns pulse into the cryostat. An optical bench located under the platform in an enclosed box allows to manipulate this beam and modify the energy and beam spot size.

This images shows an overview. The whole system is described at http://arxiv.org/abs/1406.6400

The laser box consist of remotely controlled mirrors, as shown in:

The execution of the UV laser run by the shifter is using the run control in the DAQ laser mode. The shifter needs to read the SOP for regular operation, do the UV laser training class (no eye exam necessary) and be instructed by the UV laser owner/operator on which procedures to follow.
