Is the venteon f-to-2f interferometer in CEP5 complex and difficult to handle?

Not at all! The venteon f-to-2f interferometer is very compact, almost common path configuration and hands-off, so you don’t have to touch it after installation.  Should the beam in front of the interferometer be misaligned for some reason, there are three pinholes included in the setup and a readjustment can be performed by doing a beam-walk on these irises to obtain a good beat signal. This re-adjustment is very straight forward, since there are only two mirrors to align.
