I did additional tests for the strange behavior of ASCD. ETMY, ETMX and ITMY were misaligned so that only light reflected by ITMX went into AS port. I had done similar measurement before with ITMY YAW varied.
Attachment 1 shows how ASDC level changed when ITMX PIT varied.
Attachment 2 shows how ASDC level changed when ITMX YAW varied.
Attachment 3 shows how the power of light measured by a power meter just after the AS view port varied when ITMX YAW varied.
Comparing 1 & 2, we can say that this behavior is not unique to YAW direction.
From 2 & 3, we can say something strange is happening inside the chamber.
To check if the strange behavior of ASDC is caused by SR2/SR3 or not, I did the following measurement:
ASDC measures the power of the light reflected by ITMX. POXDC measures the power of the light reflected by ITMX and SRM successively. Then I varied the angle of ITMX in YAW direction and compared the behaviors of ASDC and POXDC.
The results are shown in Attachments 1-3.
As you can see in these figures, the strange up-and-down behavior appeared ONLY in ASDC. Therefore, the cause of this behavior exists between AS table and SRM (I had confirmed that the angle of SRM did not affect ASDC).
And this behavior is fringe-like, as can be seen in the figures (there seems to be 3 "peaks" and 2 "valleys"), so the cause could be interference between main path and not good AR reflection at a mirror after SRM before AS table (I suspect a mirror is flipped mistakenly).
I took PR3 AR reflectivity and calculated PRG (PR3 is flipped and so AR surface is inside PRC).
As shown in attached figure, which shows AR specification of the LaserOptik mirror (PR3 is this mirror), AR reflectivity of PR3 is ~0.5 %. Since resonant light in PRC goes through AR surface of PR3 4 times per round trip, round trip loss due to this is ~2 %. Then I got
PRG = 7.8.
Attached is the plot of relation between the average arm round trip loss and power recycling gain. 2 % loss due to PR3 AR reflection is taken into account.
Based on calibration measurement I have done (elog 11785, 11831), I updated calibration factors of oplevs on medm screen as follows. Not to change loop gain oplev servo, I also changed oplev servo gain.
