Subject: EOAM phenomenology 

I've been unsure of how the EOAMs are affecting the state of the light impinging on the cavity.

So far we've been rotating the post-EOAM QWPs so as to maximize the strength of the amplitude modulation. I'm still not sure what this does. I'd like to instead fix the QWP at ±45° and then insert the EOAM, regardless of whether this introduces a DC power offset. At the very least this will give us a polarization state that we think we understand.
