14th Meeting, 1st of December 2021

Meeting summary

We discussed privacy consideration for the data uploaded to the AirTable WG1 database and will discuss further with WG9 and AirTable the different options to limit visibility and access. We also finalized the main document, discussed the linearity protocol and adding more representative data. The protocol has been transferred to Protocol.io in a private account, it will be further updated and made accessible to all QUAREP members early next year. We also assigned the different appendices to different subgroups to work on a very first, publishable version of the power meter settings, automation measurements, impact of environmental factors, and troubleshooting sections.

13th Meeting, 3rd of November 2021

Meeting summary

We had 20 participants today and welcomed 3 new members. We presented Airtable, a new web-based platform for shared database. All previously collected data and new plots can be found on this Dashboard. Use the following Form  to enter new data. You will need to sign in and create an account before getting access. We also reviewed very briefly some editing done by Laurent and Nathalie on the main document (formatting and reorganization) and a new draft version of the protocol uploaded on Protocol.io. Finally, we went over some example data of laser warming up presented by Laszlo. We all agreed that it should be included in our protocol.

12th Meeting, 6th of October 2021

Meeting summary

We reviewed the new introduction section, providing context, purpose and objectives for the laser power stability protocol.

We also discussed laser safety, alternative protocols and the results section.

For the results, the majority highly recommended to not present at once all the results we gathered (we don’t believe we have a representative sample yet), but preferably to provide typical examples of data, show how it should be analyzed, presented and communicated. We also proposed to include a template.

We discussed laser warm-up and proposed to include an appendix of example data for different systems.

Finally, we also reviewed briefly our appendices.

11th Meeting, 1st of September 2021

Meeting summary

We spent the meeting reviewing the edits and comments everyone made in the first two pages of the main document. Amongst other things, we discussed adding more specificity to the goal of this protocol in the introduction, proposed to emphasize Laser Safety remarks with bold text, references and symbols, to add a CAD file of Roland’s holder, and write system specific instructions to the appendix section. A Zotero group library has been created and link sent to all (please communicate with Nathalie if you need help including a reference).

10th meeting, 2nd of June 2021

Meeting summary

We reviewed comments in the main document, discussing comments and suggestions and adding tips on safety, environmental conditions, and type of laser used. We also discussed the potential damages a laser can cause to an objective, the difference in laser power measurements obtained from different laser power meter brands/sensors and the effect of temperature on your measurements. The subgroups “Automation” and “Powermeter” reported briefly their progress.

9th meeting, 5th of May 2021

Meeting summary

We reviewed comments in the main document, discussed discrepancy between measurements made with different power meter models on the same microscope and same laser, commented different graphs to display all measurements made by the group in their respective labs so far, to help define what a “stable” behavior is. We decided to set up a Zotero shared library for reference articles. The automation sub-group presented the project of a GitHub repository for scripts.
