Stability, alignment and metrology
SAM stands for Stability, Alignment, and Metrology. Currently, there are 5 members working in the team. The joint abilities of the team span from mechanical design and statistical data analysis to practical work with vacuum systems and hands-on problem solving.
The team supports both the Machine Division and the Science Division of the laboratory, primarily by planning and executing alignment of components, but also by e.g. monitoring vibrations and building up a laboratory for optical metrology.
Their main approaches consist of cross-disciplinary collaboration and problem-solving.
