Our quantum logic gate setup is complete. The final design of the how it would be built was finished roughly 3 weeks
ago. The laser was adjusted to produce a nice-looking order N=1 Hermite-Gauss mode, and determination of the beam waist size and
position was then performed. The necessary optical elements arrived and designs were drawn up about 2 weeks ago. The machine
was accomplished about a week ago, and construction took place over the past week.
