It turned out the oplev controls on ETMY were just bad.
It looks like the whitening filters have been OFF and because of that the resultant open-loop was not crossing the unity gain.
I will check the whitening filters.
(open-loop transfer function)
The blue dots are the measured data points and the green curve is the fit.
Apparently the open-loop doesn't go above the unity gain, so the oplev had been doing nothing.
If we try to increase the overall gain it will oscillate because of the phase delay of more than 180 deg around 3 Hz.
The red curve is the expected one with the whitening filters (WFs) properly engaged.
Note that WF are supposed to have two zeros at 1 Hz and two poles at 10 Hz.
