Subject: vertical seismic coupling to beat noise 

  From 40m page, COMSOL FEA gives us the coupling (from vertical seismic to frequency noise ) to be 53 [kHz / (m/s2)].

Fig1: TF measurement( from PSL:735). This time the estimation from FEA is plotted as well.

    ==comments==

  •      From ACAV/seismic (Green), the measurement is ~ 1order of magnitude higher than the FEA result. This might come from the fact that the support is not exactly at the right place
  •      From RCAV/seismic (red), the TF tells us nothing. The coherence is close to zero, and the SNR is very low (~10-6 - 10-5). This requires 1010 average to bring SNR to 1. Below is the plot for Signal (frequency noise due to seismic) and noise (NPRO free running noise. And SNR (Signal/Noise)

     fig 2: Signal and Noise in TF measurement between RCAV noise and seismic.

        The NPRO free running noise is from psl:617. Seismic noise is measured by an accelerometer (PSL:716)and converted to frequency noise using coupling from FEA result (53kHz / (m/s^2))

  ==what's next==

  1.  Since the SNR for RCAV noise/seismic is very small, we might have to shake the table and remeasure it.
  2.  Use a better seismometer. The current accelerometer might not be sensitive enough.
  3. Check the coupling from FEA, check what is the coupling as a function of supporting position.
