|There was essentially no change in the ETMY oplev spectrum with the cryo off!|
So I went out to the ETMY OL table to see what else was going on. I found there one of
the most horrible opto-mechanical setups I have ever seen (and remember that I have once
seen someone mount an NPRO on a cardboard box). Some bad person had mounted the ETMY OL
lens on a 12" long skinny post and extended it towards the viewport. So there was a post
holder on the table and a lens ~12" away on a rickety lever arm.
I took this lens away and the spectrum is now good. Shame on you.
CYAN - cryo ON
BLACK - cryo OFF
BLUE - no crappy lens + mount
This OL needs to be fixed correctly by putting in a proper lens to get a small spot on the QPD.
