Subject: ALS out of loop noise 

Beat notes were recovered for both the arms.

I locked the arms to IR using PDH and measured the ALS out of loop noise at the phase tracker output.

The Y arm has the same 300Hz/rtHz rms. The X arm rms noise measures nearly the same as the Y arm in the 5-500Hz region (X arm has improved nearly 10 times after the last whitening filter stage change  old elog ).

The noise in the ALSX error signals could be related to the bad alignment and conditions at the X end.
