- Attended a talk on LIGO

Plan for building the model

- Find the fields that would be incident on the beam splitter from each arm (This is done already)

- Propagate these through until they get to the OMC using the TELESCOPE function in SIS

- Combine the fields incident on the OMC in MATLAB and minimize the power to get the input field for the OMC (Most of this is done, just waiting to figure out what kind of format we need to use it as an SIS input)

- Model the OMC as an FP cavity in SIS

    + Need to think about how to align the cavity in a sensible way in SIS (need to find out more about how they actually do it)

- Pick off the fields from both ends of the OMC-FP cavity for analysis

- Add thermal effects to one of the arms and see how that changes the fields, specifically how the signal to noise ratio changes

  178   Thu Jun 28 16:27:37 2012 Alex MauneyMiscaLIGO Modeling6/28/12 Daily Summary

- Finished the MatLab code that both combines two fields and simulates the adjustment of the beamsplitter to minimize the power out (with a small offset).

- Added the signal recycling telescope to the SIS code that generates the fields

To Do: Make the OMC cavity in SIS


  180   Mon Jul 9 16:54:17 2012 Alex MauneyMiscaLIGO Modeling7/9/12 Summary

Made a COMSOL model that can include CO2 laser heating, self heating, and ring heating

Figured out how to run SIS out of a script and set up commands to run the two SIS stages of the model
