Today I began to see a forest of peaks in the transmission (transmission through the cantilever optic) while aligning meaning that the cavity is around resonance. I then adjusted the Watec camera to the transmission of the curved mirror and began to see some flashes. I took a video showing this which can be found here.
I tried activating the feedback loop with the settings we had on earlier but while it did seem to increase the peak powers of the peaks it did not seem to lock. The steering mirror to the refl photodiode (Newfocus 1811) and the corresponding lens needs to be re-adjusted.
