Spent a bit of time fiddling with the FSS again today. In a not-particularly-systematic manner, I raised the input-side of the 21.5MHz PC, adjusted the half-wave plate in front of it, touched up the RC alignment and the alignment onto the transmitted and reflected diodes. This got us a ~15% increase in
transmitted light, and I was able to push the UGF to 140kHz with the common gain slider at 30dB and the FAST gain slider at 22dB. The next options include adjusting the AOM setup, mode matching into the RC, and just increasing the pickoff fraction right from the getgo.
