Subject: Spanned gain parameter space in NFSS and checked beatnote 

Yesterday I took beatnote measurements and spanned gain values (COM and FAST) to see the variation in beatnote with them.


Method

  • I used BNspec.py with default settings (10 kHz bandwidth at 15.625 kSa/s for 60s) while spanning the parameter space of NFSS gains.
  • Every time the gain values are changed, a gainCycle.py is done and script waited for 10s before attempting beatnote measurement to let loops settle down.
  • The beatnote frequency was robustly within 2 kHz of 27.34 MHz during this whole measurement.
  • Overall experiment was run by spanParamSpace.py script.

Inference

  • I calculated the integrated total beatnote frequency noise in the frequency range 200 Hz to 1 kHz where the total noise is expected to be dominated by coating Brownian noise.
  • Interestingly, the beatnote noise in this range is not so much dependent on the NFSS loop gain values.
  • I notice a largely flat heatmap with no significant local minima.
  • This indicates that beatnote is indeed not limited by North NPRO residual frequency noise in this region at least.
  • I'm repeating this measurement today while scanning SFSS loop gains.
