The coupling coefficient I measured before changed with input power/ alignment of the beam. What I measured before might be the RF-AM effect. [figures and more details will be added]

 

I read Frank's entry, and tried to see the effect of other parameters on coupling coefficient. I tried

      1) misaligning  the  beam into the cavity, and

        The power level is still 1mW input. I turned the knob of the periscope to misaligned the beam. RCTRANSPD DC value dropped from 250 mV to 207 mV, the peak at 10Hz in FASTMON disappeared. 

      [add fig]

 

 

      2) changing power input to the cavity. I tried 0.5 mW, 1 mW, 2mW, 5mW

 As I changed the power, I adjusted the gain so that the noise from MIXEROUT remained the same, but at certain power I could not see the peak in FASTMON signal.
