Subject: Notch improved on FSS RFPDs. Gain values increased as well. 

New Gain Values:

South Common Gain: 24 dB , Fast Gain: 18 dB

North Common Gain: 14 dB, Fast Gain: 14 dB

I incrased the above values as much as I could without getting oscillations in the loop.


RFPD Changes:

  • The North FSS RFPD SN009 (CTN:2512) and South FSS RFPD SN010 (CTN:2514) have been improved in terms of ratio of their peak transimpedance to their notch transimpedance by implementing an active notch in the output RF amplifier.
  • This was supposed to reduce non-linear effects (if any) because less of the 2-Omega frequency would go through the amplifier.
  • It seems like it didn't help at all as the beatnote noise spectrum is at the same place as before.
  • While the gain values of FSS have increased, the transimpedances of the RPFDs decreased after the changes,
