Koji and I have the PRMI locked right now, and we hear a very strong violin mode ringing up, at 628Hz. This is, according to Koji's elog 9634, what we expect the PRM's violin mode to be. However, the current PRM violin mode notch is really more of a bandstop filter, between 622-670Hz. At 628Hz, it has a suppression of about -20dB. If I try to increase the width of this notch by making it 612-670Hz, the PRMI won't hold lock.
We're leaving this as a daytime task for tomorrow, since we're in the middle of taking data to show that Koji's new ASC filter design (slightly tuned from his elog 9769) works well.
Edit: I have moved the PRM violin notch frequency over to 612-660 Hz, and after letting it sit for a while (while locked on PRMI), the violin mode has settled down. Interestingly, if I compare the spectrum with and without the 1st order violin mode notch, it looks like the 2nd order mode changes from 1256Hz to 1303Hz. I don't know what is going on here, but we already have notches for both of those frequencies.
