11th Meeting, 1st of September 2021
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
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
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.
