Subject: Noise Bump observed at 8kHz during TIA noise analysis 

The noise analysis for TIA was done. The circuit was in open but kept away from SR785 (to avoid any noise effect)

Attachment 1 and 2 show how the setup was placed. The wires were kept in a way that there is no tension. The wires that were used for connection from the voltage supply were twisted in order to avoid any inductance issue. The input range was kept at -44BVpk (this was maintained at all points when taking measurements with SR560) while using the SR785. SR560 was used with a flat gain of 100 in order to get above the noise of SR785 and also the AC coupling was used. LM317 and LM337 were used to provide a 15V(+/-) supply to OpAmp. The OpAmp used here is Op27. 

Attachment 3 shows the noise analysis across TIA(using Op27). It was observed that the voltage regulators help in noise reduction to a great extent at low frequencies but somehow at around 8kHz, a huge noise bump is being observed. I also checked the noise by using directly the voltage supply at the lab. It does impart high noise at low frequencies but it's clearly visible that noise bump at 8kHz isn't there. The noise bump exists only when the voltage regulators are being used with the OpAmp. I did check if the output of voltage regulators were oscillating due to some reason but they provided a constant output of 15.04V(+/-).  I did check if the OpAmp was broken but it isn't the case because the difference between the voltage at pin 2 and 3 is zero, I have two TIA on my board so I checked the noise for both of them and I observed the same results.

Attachment 4 shows the noise of TIA using LT1792. It was seen that the 8kHz noise bump is evident on even changing the OpAmp. 

I am unable to understand how is this issue coming up. I did the measurement quite a few times just to be sure It's not a one-time thing but the noise bump is dominant.
