Review of Laser Guidestar Activity at LMCT CfAO Retreat: March 26, 2007 1 Agenda Update on AODP Phase 2 Objectives Delay Issues Fiber Testing Waveguide Delivery / Performance Schedule Looking Ahead Update on SFG Activities Brief update on GSK CfAO Retreat: March 26, 2007 2 Phase 2 Objectives Complete Complete Relay Relay Fiber Fiber Testing Testing 1064 1064 nm nm Power Power Milestone Milestone (83 (83 W) W) 22 Full Full Talbot-length Talbot-length WGs WGs 1319 1319 nm nm Power Power Milestone Milestone (69 (69 W) W) 33 Full

Full Talbot-length Talbot-length WGs WGs 589 589 nm nm Power Power Milestone Milestone (50 (50 W) W) Based Based on on 30% 30% conversion conversion efficiency efficiency CfAO Retreat: March 26, 2007 3 AODP Delay Issues Waveguide deliveries: The primary WG vendor has delivered over 12 WGs to specification that meet performance criteria The primary WG vendor is now also meeting schedule. Both bonded and epoxied WGs are performing Resources: Both AODP and GSK has lost key personnel in the last 3 months Due to the higher priority of GSK, Munib Jalali was pulled off of AODP Jo Bellanca (Research Scientist) now working on AODP AODP Phase 2 scheduled to conclude in September 2007.

No SRS observed in these

experiements May have some SBS present at higher power levels, but we are right on the threshold Will continue tests once AODP setup is up and running again.
