The opportunity to set up one's lab is always a great occasion. In doing so, there are items one can easily overlook. The purpose of this chapter is to provide some guidance, reminders, and explanations of items for you to consider in establishing or retrofitting your lab.
This checklist is a reminder of general topics to be considered before and during laser lab set up. Some items will require consultation with your LSO, while others are institutional requirements that you do not want to overlook, such as clearance from electrical panels.
