Subject: RCAV/ACAV poles 

I analyzed the pole for RCAV and ACAV from 2010_12_06 entry. ACAV has a pole at  54 kHz, RCAV pole is at 38kHz.


Cavity pole = FWHM/2. Knowing cavity pole and FSR, we can calculate a cavity's finesse (= FSR/ pole). These values

will be used when we simulate the TF of the system

We amplitude modulated the laser intensity via EAOM, and measured the TF between RCAV_trans_PD and PMC for RCAV pole.

Since PMC's pole is ~2 MHz and ACAV/RCAV poles should be around 35 MHz, PMC won't effect much on our measurement.


Cavity is 0.2032 m long -> FSR = c/2L = 738 MHz, then


ACAV's Finesse = FSR/FWHM = 6835

RCAV's Finesse =  9710
