Subject: current gyro noise budget 

 Attached is a current gyro noise budget. It has not yet been fully automated, but Koji wanted to have something to look at this afternoon so I made this one by hand. One very nice thing to note here is that the current gyro sensitivity is clearly limited by the dark noise of the PDA255 REFL diodes above ~20 Hz, which we suspected but until now haven't substantiated.

A couple notes:

  • The PDA255 dark noise was only plotted as it affects the primary loop, as the second loop appears to have ~5x higher optical gain [V/Hz]
  • Shot noise and demod noise do not currently appear as the current REFL noise is dominated by the PDA255 dark noise, as shown here.
