This KTP crystal has the maximum allowed RF power of 10W (=32Vpk) and V_pi = 230V. This corresponds to the maximum allowed
modulation depth of 32*Pi/230 = 0.44. So we probably can achieve gamma_1 of ~0.4 and gamma_2 of ~0.13. That's not x3 but x2,
so sounds not too bad.
Then Kiwamu's triple resonant circuit LIGO-G1000297-v1 actually shows the modulation up to ~0.7. Therefore it is purely an issue
how to deliver sufficient modulation power. (In fact his measurement shows some nonlinearity above the modulation depth of ~0.4
so we should keep the maximum power consumption of 10W at the crystal)
This means that we need to review our RF system (again!)
- Review infamous crazy attn/amp combinations in the frequency generation box.
- Use Teledyne Cougar ampilfier (A2CP2596) right before the triple resonant box. This should be installed closely to the triple resonant box in order to
minimize the effects of the reflection due to imperferct impedance matching.
- Review and refine the triple resonant circuit - it's not built on a PCB but on a universal board. I think that we don't need triple
resonance, but double is OK as the 29.5MHz signal is small.
We want +28V supply at 1X1 for the Teledyne amp and the AOM driver. Do we have any unused Sorensen? |
