Subject: circuit for measuring temperature fluctations on CTN table 
July 23, 2013
Went to a lecture Alan gave for the CGWAS on data analysis in the morning at Cahill (http://www.cgwas.org/index.php/Caltech_Gravitational-Wave_Astrophysics_School_2013). I had more data, signal from the recombined beam over different time periods that I took so I put those into graphs.

I practiced soldering stuff.
Notes:
Wet the sponge below the iron. You can test to see if iron is hot if you hear the sizzle when you touch the iron to the sponge. A good idea is to cover the iron w/ new solder, since the old solder on the tip has oxidized.
Solder will go where it is hot, so you need to heat both the board and the wire to get a good connection. Good joints look like volcanoes.


Circuit design:
Evan figured out a circuit to for the AD590, as seen below.



The 20k resister determines the voltage that goes to the rest of the circuit. A high pass filter follows, with a capacitor on the order of 100 uF and resistor about 1 M ohm. This takes out the DC signal and AC couples the circuit. The filter will also ignore fluctuations that are slower than 100s. The two resistors connected to the op amp have a gain of 100. The op amp can only have an output up to 15V so with a gain of 100x, it can only take in 0.15 V before it saturates.


Prototyping:
We used a breadboard where we can just plug in the components to see if the circuit works like it want it to. For the high pass filter, we used two 22 uF capacitors in parallel = 44 uF (22uF is the largest WIMA capacitor - film capacitor; anything higher will be ceramic and have a lot more noise; also they may be polarized which is a bit more hassle when wiring stuff up) and two 1 Mohm resistors to make a 2M ohm resistor.



Testing:
We connected the circuit to a function generator and oscilloscope. The function generator was also connected to the oscilloscope (using T connector).
There was a 100x gain, as expected.
Note: make sure the oscilloscope is DC coupled, or else another capacitor will be put into the circuit in the oscilloscope and you won't get the correct signal.
Also, be careful about making the amplitude too large because that can saturate the op amp. If you do both of these things, then you get this weird signal that is trying to be a square wave but failing.



Note: AD590 has a polarization. The pin with the little bump sticking out should be connected to the positive side.
