Subject: About PMCs 

Considerations for PMC design:

  1. Stiffness(Acoustic susceptibility) & heavy material: With heavier material, the pmc motion on the support becomes smaller.(RXA: please quantify with a formula)
  2. Filtering factor (Finesse/FSR/Cavity pole), g-factor: Filter out intensity noise around 10 MHz (RXA: please quantify with a formula)
  3. Design for thermal expansion cancellation between the spacer and the end cap: So that the PMC is less sensitive to ambient temperature
  4.  3 or 4 mirrors?  3 is polarization selective. For general lab use with power less than 1 W,  3 mirror design should be good. (RXA: I don't follow this logic at all)

RXA: In general, all of these considerations need some sort of quantitative detail. Make a DeBra Matrix so that we can evaluate.
