Jenne and Yuta's Summer Plan

These are the things that we'd like to accomplish, hopefully before Yuta leaves in mid-July

* Yarm mode scan

  ~ Measure residual motion of Yarm cavity when ALS is engaged

* Xarm mode scan

  ~ Align Xarm IR

  ~ Align Xarm green to cavity

  ~ Do mode scan (similar to Yarm)

  ~ Measure residual motion of Xarm cavity when ALS is engaged

* Hold both arms on IR resonance simultaneously (quick proof that we can)

  ~ Modify beatbox so we can use both X and Y at the same time (Jamie will do this Wednesday morning - we've already discussed)

* PRMI + Arms

  ~ Lock the PRMI (which we already know we can do) holding arms off resonance, bring both arms into resonance using ALS

* PRC mode matching - figure out what the deal is

  ~ Look at POP camera with video capture - use software that Eric the Tall wrote with JoeB to measure spot size

* DRMI glitches

  ~ Why can't we keep the DRMI locked stably?

* DRMI + Arms

  ~ Full lock!!

  ~ Make lots of useful diagnostics for aLIGO, measure sensing matricies, etc.
