Subject: shot noise measurement 

I wanted to measure the RF transimpedance of the WFS heads, as outlined above.

Summary: Measurement is not done.

Details:

  • closed the PSL shutter
  • taped over the WFS 2 opening with frosted scotch tape
  • illuminated the QPD with an incandescent flashlight.
    • All of the D batteries were close to dead, so it seemed dimmer than usual
  • Observed the WFS2 segment 1 RF spectrum on the Agilent, but saw no difference between the spectrum with and without the flashlight. Must need a brighter light, and possibly also better alignment.
  • Needed to skype someone and pass off the IFO to gautam, so I untaped the QPD, returned the appropriate LEMO connector, and opened the PSL shutter.
