Subject: AUX X Freq Noise attempt 

The problem here is that the MC displacement noise is leading to large frequency excursions of the PSL beam. Options

  1. Feed back the low frequency PLL control signal to the MC2 length to suppress the excursion required by the Marconi. This is better than driving the laser, since the drive to the laser would be squashed by the MC locking loop.
  2. Put the beat signal through a divider? Don't know if this makes the Marconi more able to handle it.
  3. Turn on the MCL path. this will make the low frequency MC error signal go to the MC length, thereby reducing the low frequency feedback to the NPRO.
