Abstract

Efforts are underway at the National Institute of Standards and Technology to drastically reduce the uncertainty of laser power measurements using radiation pressure. The High Amplification Laser-pressure Optic (HALO) system is a cornerstone of this effort as it enables amplification of the laser pressure on a high-quality mirror attached to a precision force sensor. We discuss the HALO architecture here.
