  419   Fri Aug 18 14:15:47 2017 ZachElectronicsModelingSame Voltage ESD Sweep

2017-08-18

  • I ran a sweep of the central position in the two ESD setup with both set at the same voltage. There were two designs that maximized excitation by different metrics, the design with a 3 mm shift from the original design maximized excitation overall, but the 20 kHz mode was worse by a bout a factor of 5. The design with a -2 mm shift maximized the high frequency modes, particularly the modes most affected by the shift.
  • MATLAB crashed shortly after the sweep so I will have to recreate the RMS plots of the dynamic modes later.

LIGO-T1600466

  • S1600432 shows some residual on face, close to the edge, probably from first contact
  • S1600433 looks ok
  • S1600434 shows a small residual on the face, the edge, probably from first contact, and a back spot, probably a residual of the contamination
  • S1600435 shows a large halo on the face, like what you get when solvents dry on the surface leaving some traces
  • S1600436 has some red residual on the edge, likely first contact
  • S1600437 the surface looks ok but the edge has a clear reddish color

Installation

  • into the chamber and balanced at 11am. Pump down started at 11:00am.
  • it looks like the turbo pump shaked the sample too much and moved it significantly. At 11:44am I had to tweak a bit the input steering periscope to avoid the outgoing beam to be clipped on the pickoff mirror
  • roughing pump off at 2:27pm
  • excitation at 2:36pm (2000 V, 30 s)

The following plot compares the Q measured on this sample yesterday here at Caltech with the GeNS system, with the measurement perfomed by Raymond Robie in Glasgow.

- blue dots: measurements on the flame polished sample here at Caltech
- orange crosses and yellow triangles: Raymond’s measurements on the flame polished sample at in Glasgow (after annealing)
- purple crosses: typical Q values measured on disk samples (not annealed nor flame polished) here at Caltech

Flame polishing of the edges did not change significantly the Q we measure with the GeNS system. However, the GeNS system rovide systematically higher Q values for basically all measurable modes.

Cleaning and baking (200 C air foe SS and 120 for Al) parts for the new vacuum chamber

  120   Wed Sep 21 14:42:47 2016 GabrieleGeneralGeneralSerialized (etched) disk installed

Just for fun, I installed the disk thas has been etched in the center with "1234". I figured out that the ESD PCB was probably too close to the disk, so I moved it a bit up.

Pump down started at about 2:38pm LT.

  454   Tue Jan 30 09:19:09 2018 GabrieleOpticsConfigurationSetup for 50mm disks

I realigned all optical levers to measure the 50mm disks. In brief, I moved the input 2" mirrors, the in-vacuum 2" mirrors and the PZT mirrors so that the beam hits the 50mm sample and gets back into the QPD. Re-aligned everything to the horizontal reference using water.

I repeated the analysis for bulk and shear losses described in an early elog entry, with the same coating, but after annealing at 500C for 9 hours. 

The COMSOL model is the same as before, so the dilution factors are the same, except that this time I could measure a few more modes at high frequency:

As in the previous analysis, I fitted four different models:
1) one single loss angle for both bulk and shear, constant in frequency
2) one single loss angle for both bulk and shear, linear in frequency
3) separate bulk and shear loss angles, constant
4) separate bulk and shear loss angles, linear in frequency 

The data strongly favor the last model: two loss angles for shear and bulk, linearly dependent on frequency (Bayes factor -22.7 for the second best model, which is the frequency dependent single loss angle).

The results are below. 

Single constant loss angle

\phi = (3.95 \pm 0.08) \times 10^{-4} \mbox{ rad}

Single loss angle, linearly dependent on frequency

\phi = (3.69 \pm 0.17) \times 10^{-4} + \frac{f-1 kHz}{1 kHz} (4.6 \pm 0.3)\times 10^{-6} \mbox{ rad}

Bulk and shear loss angles, constant

\begin{array}{l} \phi_{shear} = (3.4 \pm 0.5) \times 10^{-4} \mbox{ rad} \\ \phi_{bulk} = (7.3 \pm 3.3) \times 10^{-4} \mbox{ rad} \\ \end{array}

Bulk and shear loss angles, linearly dependent on frequency

\begin{array}{l} \phi_{shear} = (3.58 \pm 0.15) \times 10^{-4} + \frac{f - 1 kHz}{1 kHz} (6.1 \pm 2.4) \times 10^{-6} \mbox{ rad} \\ \phi_{bulk} = (4.5 \pm 1.2) \times 10^{-4} + \frac{f - 1 kHz}{1 kHz} (-7 \pm 16) \times 10^{-6} \mbox{ rad} \\ \end{array}
