(Kiwamu, Yuta)

We succeeded in coarse locking the green beat frequency, using a frequency counter and feeding back the signal to the X-end laser temperature.

Setup:
  beat note -> RF PD -> SHP-25 -> SLP-100 -> ZFL-1000LN -> ZFL-1000LN -> ZFL-500LN -> ZFRSC-42 -> SBP-70 -> ZFRSC-42 -> SR620 -> c1psl(C1:PSL-126MOPA_126MON)
  c1auxey(C1:LSC-EX_GREENLASER_TEMP) -> X-end laser temp

  The frequency counter SR620 converts the beat frequency to voltage.
  We added some filters (SHP-25, SLP-100, SBP-70). Otherwise, SR620 doesn't count the frequency correctly.

What we did:

  1. Getting green beat note again
     Set PSL laser temp to 31.81 °C and X-end laser temp to 37.89 °C.
     Set PPKTP crystal temp to 37.6 °C, which maximizes output green beam power.

  2. ADC channel and DAC channel
     Disconnected one channel going into VME-3123 (at 1X1) and used c1psl's C1:PSL-126MOPA_126MON as ADC channel for the output from SR-620
     Made a new DAC channel on c1auxey named C1:LSC-EX_GREENLASER_TEMP, and disconnected one channel from VME-4116 (at 1X9) to use it as DAC channel for X-end laser temperature control.

  3. Coarse lock by ezcaservo
     Ran;
        ezcaservo C1:PSL-126MOPA_126MON -s 150 -g -0.0001 C1:LSC-EX_GREENLASER_TEMP
     "-s" option is a set value. The command locks C1:PSL-126MOPA_126MON to 150 (in counts), using 0Hz pole integrator.

Result:
  The beat frequency locked on to ~77MHz. The frequency fluctuation of the beat note during the servo is ~3MHz with ~10sec timescale.
  VCO has  ~+/-5MHz range, so this coarse locking meets the requirement.

  Here's a plot of the error signal and feed back signal;
