PRMI(sb) lock was recovered
- Stared at the time series data of the REFL demod signals, and decided to use REFL165I&Q for the locking.
- Jiggled the demodulation phase of REFL165 and POP110. Changed the servo gains.
- Finally found a short lock. Further optimized the parameters.
- PRM ASC was turned on by giving the identity matrices for the input and output matrices.
Now just hitting the up button is sufficient to engage the ASC servo.
- Under the presence of the ASC, the PRMI is indefinitely locked as before.
- Reacquisition is also instantaneous. (It acquires even if the ASC is left "on".)
- Actually the lock is somewhat robust even when the PRM ASC is not used.
This is VERY GOOD as we can skip one of the steps necessary for the full lock.
Although, the seismic on Friday night is very quiet.
The spot motion at POP seems to be somewhat pitch/yaw mixed, in stead of previous "totally-dominated-by-yaw" situation.
- We are ready to implement ASS for PRM
Demod phase adjustment
- Shook PRM at 580Hz / 100cnt
- Swept the demod phase of REFL165 such that the PRM peak is minimized in the Q signal
- Open DTT. Measured transfer functions between REFL165I and the Q signals of each PD.
- Minimized the PRCL signal coupling in the signals.
- The resolution of the adjustment was ~1deg.
Locking test with PRM/BS
Tried the lock acquisition only with PRM and BS. (cf. http://nodus.ligo.caltech.edu:8080/40m/8816)
This just worked nicely.
