I could not improve the locking. So, I checked the transfer function of the PDH box again. The transfer function looks okay if the gain knob is <=2.0.
If the gain knob is >2.0 the 20dB step appears in the transfer function (see elog page 5713). This step is shifted to higher frequencies if the gain is
increased. The PZT drive out was not saturated at any time. Yesterday, I checked the electronic circuit with a gain of 2.0. Thus, I couldn't find the broken
gain amplifier (AD8336). The amplifier is ordered in will arrive on Monday.
