Today, I kicked the PRM to see the sideband splitting in POP110.
First, we can qualitatively see we moved in the right direction! (See ELOG 9490)
I fit the middle three peaks to a sum of two Lorentzian profiles ( I couldn't get Airy peaks to work... but maybe this is ok since I'm just going to use the location parameter?), and looked at the sideband splitting as a fraction of the FSR, in the same way as in Gabriele's ELOG linked above.
This gave: c / (4 * f55) * (dPhi / FSR) = 0.014 +- .001
Since the PRC length with simultaneous resonance (to 1mm) is given by c / (4 * f11) = 6.773, this means our length is either 6.759m or 6.787m (+- .001). Given the measurement in ELOG 9588, I assume that we are on the short side of the simultaneous resonance. Thus
The sideband splitting observed from this kick indicates a PRC length of 6.759m +- 1mm |
