Subject: my plan tonight 

I am going to try handing off the ALS servo to the IR PDH servo on the Y arm and measure the noise.

 - first I need to investigate why the Y end PDH servo becomes unstable when the ALS is engaged with a high UGF.


(some notes)

 So far I still kept failing to increase the UGF of the ALS servo for some reason (see #6024).

Every time when I increased the UGF more then 50 Hz, the Y arm PDH lock became unlocked. It needs an explanation and a solution.

Another thing: During several trials in this evening I found the ETMY_SUSPOS_GAIN had been set to 1, so I reset it to 20, which gives us the damping Q of about 5.


(Temperature feedback activated)

 As planed in #6024 I have activated the temperature feedback, so that the PZT control signal is offloaded to the temperature. And it seems working fine.

Currently the gain is set to 0.03, which gives us a time constant of ~30 sec for offloading the control signal.
