Subject: RCAV modematching optimized 

 I optimized mode matching for RCAV. The coupling is ~75%.  I also minimized RFAM from the 35.5MHz EOM.

            

          For RCAV mode matching, I moved only two lenses in front of RCAV (R=51.5 and 20.6 mm) to optimize the mode matching.

I have not tried moving other lenses or the mirror behind AOM yet, because I think 75% is enough for now.

 The reflected beam will cause the shot noise level to be higher, but it should not be critical for our current situation.
