Subject: SOS assembly -- PR3 

[yehonathan, paco, anchal]

We continue suspending PR3 today. Yehonathan and Paco suspended the thick optic in its adapter. After fixing some nominal height and undoing any residual roll angle (see Attachments 1,2 for pictures), we noticed a problem with the pitch angle, so we insert the counterweights all the way in. Nevertheless, we soon found out that we needed to shift one of the two counterweights to the back of the adapter side (so one on each side) in order to tare the pitch angle. This is a newly experienced maneuver that may apply for further thick optics.

After taring the pitch angle roughly, we noted another issue. The wedge (~ 1 deg) on the optic made it such that the protruding socket heads on the thick side bumped against the lower clamp (not the earthquake stop tip itself). Attachments #4,5 show the before/after situation which was solved provisionally by replacing the socket head screws with lower profile (flat) head screws in situ. Again, this operation was highly delicate and specific to wedged thick optics, so for future SOS we should keep it in mind.

Another issue that we had with the new thick optic adapters is that for some reason there is a recession in the upper backside of the adapter (attachment coming soon). This makes the upper back EQ stop too short to touch the adapter. We replaced it with a longer screw. When inserted it doesn't really hit the back of the adapter. Rather, it touches the corner of the recession, stoping the optic with friction.

While all this was happening, Anchal started mounting AS4 on its adapter. After one of the magnets broke off, he switched to another one and succeeded. This is the next target for suspension. We still need to check the orientation of the wedge. Furthermore, we started a gluing session in the afternoon to prepare as much as possible for further SOS during the week. 3 side magnets were glued to side blocks. 3 magnets were glued to 3 adapters that were missing 1 magnet each.

In the afternoon, Yehonathan and Paco set up the QPD and did all the usual balancing, and then Anchal took the data of which the result is shown in Attachment #3. The major peaks are located at 723mHz, 953mHz, and 1.05Hz. Very similar to the case of the thin optic adapters.

Anchal progressed with OSEM installation, and engraving and yehonathan glued the counterweight setscrew in place. After securing the EQ stops, and wrapping the wires in foil, we declare PR3 is ready to be installed.
