[Manasa Masayuki]
Today we measured the openloop transfer function of the PDH green lock of the x-arm.

Edit //manasa// The excitation was given from SR785 source. SR560 was used as the summing node at the PDH servo box output where the loop was broken to measure the OLTF. The SR785 was used to measure the frequency response (CH2/CH1; CH1 A SR560 output and CH2 A PDH servo output) in sweptsine mode.

We measured with two different servo gain. We started with the servo gain of 3 and at that gain the UGF was 1.5 kHz and the phase margin was 50 degree. After that we increase the servo gain to 5.5 and at that gain the UGF was 6.2 kHz and the phase margin was 55 degree. In all the measurement we use the source amplitude of 1.0 mV for all frequencies (from 100 Hz to 100 kHz). We could not increase the gain and also the source amplitude any more because the green was kicked out of lock.

Next work list
1. In the earlier measurements we found the UGF of the PDH green lock of the x-arm as 10 kHz and the phase margin as 45 degree, so we will investigate what has changed from these measurements.elog 4490

2. We will measure the power spectrum of the error signal and the feedback signal.

3. We will calibrate the above signals to compare with ALS out of loop noise.

netgpib was taking forever to transfer data. So the measurements are just photos of the display.
