Week of 10-31-05

Happy Halloween!

Specific project tasks completed this week include:

- Measurements were taken using the new high sensitivty detectors obtained the previous week. Power stability of the system was measured at the same time scale (every 1 min for 1 hr) as the previously taken measurements, and two of such measurements were taken. It was observed that output power stability for the first 20 - 25 minutes fluctuated somewhat, but these effects were minimized after approxmately 30 minutes of warm up time.

- Based on this information, a standard warm up time of 30 minutes for the system will be implemented during all future experiments.
