Abstract:
This document describes the procedure for cleaning aLIGO optics with First Contact, in situ or otherwise.
Important Note: If you have a delicate material like calcite, OR a gold coated optic, try the first contact on a sample piece before the real thing. It has been known to peel off gold coatings that are poorly adhered to the surface.
