Subject: IMC & X/Y-arm alignment 

[Yuta, Tega]

In order to setup POP camera and RFPD on the ITMX table, we decided to first work on the IMC and X/Y-arm alignment.

 

IMC alignment:

We zeroed IMC WFS outputs and aligned IMC manually to get IMC transmission of 1200 and reflection of 0.35.

 

Y-arm alignment:

We used the new video game tool that moves the pairs of mirrors - PR3 & ETMY, ITMY & ETMY - in common and differential modes. This brought the Y-arm flashing to 0.8. Note that we used the _OFFSET bias values for PR3 & ETMY alignment instead of the _COMM bias values.

 

X-arm alignment:

We repeated the same procedure of moving the pairs of mirrors - BS & ETMX, ITMX & ETMX - in common and differential modes but manually this time. This brought the X-arm flashing to ~1.0.
