I designed a high pass filter to whiten the spectrum from the Mach Zehnder to optimize the
input into the ADC. The swept sine response measurement and the effect of the filter on the
spectrum are attached. If I start using the digital system (it is currently down in Bridge),
I will decide if the filter needs to be improved/better matched to the ADC there.

I moved from the 40m to Rana's lab in bridge. I am making a new and improved Mach Zehnder
setup with a 50m fiber in one arm; currently the transmission through the fiber is 44%. I
am working out how to mode match the laser to the fiber to improve this number.
