Subject: OMC mechanical resonances (Tap tap tappy tap) 
[Pinkesh, Aidan, Sam]

We did a tap-tap-tappy-tap test of the OMC to try to find its resonances. We looked at some combination of the PDH error signal and the DCPD signal in a couple of different noise configurations. The data included below shows tapping of the major tombstone objects as well the breadboard. I don't see any strong evidence of resonances below the very sharp resonance at 1300 Hz (which I interpret as the diving board mode of the breadboard). If I get free, I 'll post some plots of the different breadboard resonances you can excite by tapping in different places.

(The "normalized" tapping response is abs(tap - reference)./reference.)
