I analyze the 100 reps loss measurement of the Y arm using the AnalyzeLossData.ipynb notebook.
The mean of the measured loss is ~ 100ppm and the variation between the repititions is ~ 27%.
In the real measurement the misaligned and locked states are repeatedly switched between each other. I plot the misaligned and locked PD readings seperately over time.
There seems to be a drift that is correlated between the two readings. This is probably a drift in the power after the MC2. To verify, I plot the ratio between those readings and find no apparent drift:
The variation in the ratio is less than 1%. The loss figure, computed to be 1 minus this ratio times a big number, give a much worse variation. I plot the histogram of the loss figure at each repitition (excluding extremely bad measurements):
The mean is ~ 100ppm. And the variation is ~ 27%.
