Subject: Intensity noise limits the beatnote sensitivity 

The next steps we should do are :

    - to investigate a cause of the intensity fluctuation
          * end green laser
          * suspensions' angular motions
          * doublecheck the RIN contribution if it's from the PSL or the X arm in the beatnote RFPD to make sure the RIN is dominated by the X arm transmitted light
  
    - to think about how to make the system insensitive to the intensity noise
          - bring the beat frequency to the zero cross point of the MFDs ?
          - PLL ?

Quote:

We are limited by the intensity noise of the X arm transmitted green light.
