Abstract

Monitoring the changes in channel response is crucial to maintain the energy resolution of the CMS electromagnetic calorimeter. A new diode-pumped solid state blue laser was commissioned and installed at CERN for 2012 operation. This laser has a simple structure and is more reliable than the existing lamp-pumped lasers used by the monitoring system. The stability of critical parameters, such as the pulse energy, width and centre timing, is much better than that of the lamp-pumped lasers. The characteristics of this blue laser are described. Its performance in-situ at LHC is elaborated. The prospects for improving the light monitoring precision are discussed.
