Subject: Cavity is locking again! 

Upon Rana's suggestion, Alastair adjusted the polarization of the beam going through the EOM using the half wave plate before the EOM and a polarizing beamsplitter to make sure it was exactly S-polarized and locked the half wave plate at the correct position. He also tightened up some of the SMA cables, some of which were a bit loose. As you can see there's no more DC-offset in the PDH error signal (blue).
