Next meeting

2021 Feb 3rd, 18:00 - 19:00


  1. recap on MIR activity
  2. Matteo had discussion with Shinkosha on how to proceed with future samples
    • a solution may be to extract a 1cm slice from the Sapphire-bulb and analyze it at NAOJ
    • if okay, Shinkosha proceeds with extracting a KAGRA-sized substrate
    • issue: is 1cm enough for a decent analysis? can the slice' planes be parallel enough?
  3. discussion about stress-dislocation measurement
    • recap by Marco about last meeting discussion
    • report by Simon about how to extract beta angle from NAOJ birefringence measurement
    • upgrade on the system at TAMA could be made after Feb 8. (if COVID situation relaxes)
  4. simulation status by Haoyu
    • TWE maps used to create birefringence maps
    • Zernicke residuals still present
    • will compare results with existing brirefingence maps
