Entry  Tue Oct 12 17:42:57 2010, yuta, Update, SUS, very first measurement of Q-values for MC1 MC1ringdown.png
Background:
 Data aquisition system is fixed, and now we can use the Dataviewer to measure Q-values of the ringdowns for each DOF, each optics.
 First of all, I measured MC1 suspention damping servo for a test.
Entry  Tue Oct 12 22:06:08 2010, yuta, Update, Computers, celan-installed CentOS 5.5 on mafalda 
I clean-installed CentOS 5.5(32bit) on mafalda.
No firewalls, no SELinix.

Dear mafalda,
Sorry for leaving you alone.

Entry  Thu Oct 14 00:04:46 2010, yuta, Update, SUS, Q-value adjustment for MC dampings MC2ringdown.png
Background:
 We need MC to be locked soon, so MC suspensions should be damped well(Q~5).
Entry  Thu Oct 14 01:09:17 2010, yuta, Update, IOO, tried to lock MC but failed 
(Rana, Koji, Kiwamu, Suresh, Yuta)
 We attempted to lock the MC and finally got flashes of the MC,
but no luck.

Background:
 I measured the PMC's visibility vs incident power relation last week to see the thermal effect, but I didn't calibrated the laser power(see
elog #3672).

Background:
 Now we can use pyNDS(see elog #3722), so I wrote a python script that adjusts Q-value
automatically.

Background:
  Yesterday, I said I will use ZHL-32A for amplifying beat note signal, but as Koji pointed out, ZHL-32A is for medium high power.
  So I changed my mind to use ZFL-1000LN instead. ZFL-1000LN is a low noise RF amp whose maximum

Summary:
  Unfortunately, fb is flakier than normal. We can't use dataviewer and diaggui now.

Entry  Thu Oct 28 23:17:15 2010, yuta, Summary, CDS, [EMERGENCY] accidentally deleted daqd 
Rana showed me that if c1sus machine runs c1mcs stuff(and c1x02 stuff) only, we can use dataviewer without crashing fb.
Also, if we set correct NDS server and port(fb/8088), we can use diaggui on every machine.

Background:
  Before Joe left(~ 1 hour ago), fb was working for a while. But after he left, daqd core dumped.
  This is maybe because we started c1sus and c1rms again for a delay measurement,  just before he left.
Entry  Sat Oct 30 05:27:53 2010, yuta, Summary, CDS, CDS time delay measurement delaysetup.pngCDSdelay.png
Motivation:
  We want to know the time delay of CDS in the IOP scheme.
    Reply  Mon Nov 1 15:47:15 2010, yuta, Summary, CDS, CDS time delay measurement downupsampling.pngCDSdelay2.png
Background:
  I measured CDS time delay last week, but because of my lack of understanding the system, it was incorrect.
  IOP has an anti-aliasing filter before downsampling from 64kHz(65536Hz) to 16kHz(16384Hz) and also has an anti-imaging filter before upsampling

Background:
  For input filter, we have analog whitening filter and also digital whitening filter. They have the same TF and when analog one is off, digital
one should be on and vice versa.

1. We didn't measure the aperture size last night. We have to check that.

2. We have to measure the length of FI. Or find a document on this FI.

Background:
  Last night, we found that one of DAC channels are poorly connected, so we fixed the connectors.
  Rana and Koji used their incredible eyeballs to roughly align MC.
Entry  Sat Nov 13 15:53:05 2010, yuta, Update, CDS, diagonalization of MC input matrix MCspectraNov09.pngMCspectraNov13.pngMC1spetra_wrongmatrix.png
Motivation:
  MC is aligned from the A2L measurement, but to do the beam centering more precisely, we need coils to be balanced.
  There are several ways to balance the coils, like using oplev or WFS QPD RF channels.
