1 News from the RMR-Lidar 2010/2011 ASAC meeting Norderstedt 21./ G. Baumgarten et al.

2 Telescope Field of View tests NWT Removed polarizer from NWT, using pol. branch for FOV tests 1.5 mm fiber: 180 µrad up to mm fiber: 120 µrad – mm fiber: 60 µrad – mm fiber: 96 µrad since

3 CamServer/Client on tel-srv2 Green=goodyellow=clouds?red=off Laser image BGM steps NWT CamClient CamServe r SET CamClient Distance to target Server timing BGM commands

4 Performance of new system Analysis of 40 or 50 images (25/s, ~2 s) for BGM3 steps (two motors) Analysis of 40 or 50 images (25/s, ~2 s) for BGM3 steps (two motors) 1 s timeout after motor command 1 s timeout after motor command Stabilization (1µrad : 100km) Stabilization (1µrad : 100km) – average 5 µrad NWT – average 10 µrad SET – Peaks 30 µrad Beam deviations mostly caused by air turbulence at low altitudes (wind) Beam deviations mostly caused by air turbulence at low altitudes (wind)

13 ALOMA R RMR- Lidar – Norderst edt, Installation of Newport NewStep motor for handling of /2 plate at HG of laser#1. Lasers: Maintenance July/August 2010

14 ALOMA R RMR- Lidar – Norderst edt, Lasers: Maintenance July/August 2010 Exchange of flash lamps. laser#1: 53 M pulses laser#2: 53 M pulses Sealing of flow regulator in power supply of laser#1 due to leakage.

15 ALOMA R RMR- Lidar – Norderst edt, Lasers: Maintenance March 2011 Exchange of flash lamps. laser#1: 43 M pulses laser#2: 40 M pulses Exchange of primary mirror at beam widening telescope on laser table#2 holes in coating, also at 45° mirrors => probably singular seeding problem Connection of lasers to the new observatory N2 purge system

16 ALOMA R RMR- Lidar – Norderst edt, Lasers: Maintenance March 2011 Exchange of iodine cell in seeder box due to observed strange behavior of absorption spectrum. old cell: usage since 1994, solid iodine at 40°C new cell: all iodine in gas phase at 40°C (by eye) Logging of 2 additional IR energies in seeder box, now: seeder head laser#1 group laser#2 group

17 ALOMA R RMR- Lidar – Norderst edt, Lasers: Misc Shutdown of seeder control PC, program runs now on laser control PC: saving of computer maintenance and energy runs now as executable created with LabVIEW 8.6 Mobile Laser Status
