Subject: DRMI re-locked 


Reverted to old settings, tried to reproduce DRMI lock with settings as close to those used in May this year as possible. Tonight, I was successful in getting a couple of ~10min DRMI 1f locks yes. Now I can go ahead and try and reduce the noise.

I am not attempting a full characterization tonight, but the important changes since the May locks are in the de-whitening boards and coil driver boards. I did not attempt to engage the coil-dewhitening, but the PD whitening works fine.

As a quick check, I tested the hypothesis that the BS OL loop A2L coupling dominates between ~10-50Hz. The attached control signal spectra [Attachment #2] supports this hypothesis. Now to actually change the loop shape.

I've centered Oplevs of all vertex optics, and also the beams on the REFL and AS PDs. The ITMs and BS have been repeatedly aligned since re-installing their respective coil driver electronics, but the SRM alignment needed some adjustment of the bias sliders.

Full characterization to follow. Some things to check:

  • Investigate adn fix the suspect X-arm ASS loop
  • Is there too much power on the AS110 PD post Oct2016 vent? Is the PD saturating?

Lesson learnt: Don't try and change too many things at once!

GV July 5 1130am: Looks like the MICH loop gain wasn't set correctly when I took the attached spectra, seems like the bump around 300Hz was caused by this. On later locks, this feature wasn't present.
