B1 electronic noise reduced by  2 (all the power sent to only one photodiode) Slight reduction of frequency noise (alignment ?)

16 ILIAS WG1 – Perugia, September 19, 2005 G.Losurdo – INFN Firenze-Urbino 16 Stray light Stray beams in the NE external bench. 3 dumped, the bump disappeared ! Effect of stray beams dumping on B1_ACp RMS (in the bump region) Coherence of dark fringe and NE bench photodiode: before and after dumping

17 ILIAS WG1 – Perugia, September 19, 2005 G.Losurdo – INFN Firenze-Urbino 17 Mode Cleaner transmission Power stabilisation loop July 29 : Sensitivity limited by power noise due to beam jitter before the IMC  Improvement of the beam alignment on the IMC  Improvement of the power stabilisation loop (error signal taken after the IMC) End of the run : the coherence between B1 & angular error signals of MC mirror disappears. Jul 29 Vs Aug 12 Power noise

20 ILIAS WG1 – Perugia, September 19, 2005 G.Losurdo – INFN Firenze-Urbino 20 Actions after C6  10 AA loops closed (HH talk)  Full hierarchical control implemented  New B5 setup (more power on B5, less frequency noise)  Tidal control on BS  Coil driver upgraded to reduce DAC noise  New PR control filter Important achievements: Anderson technique demonstrated SA control design demonstrated ITF left locked during night !

21 ILIAS WG1 – Perugia, September 19, 2005 G.Losurdo – INFN Firenze-Urbino 21  Frequency noise limits the sensitivity above 1kHz  It is due to B5_d1 shot+electronic noise which is introduced by the SSFS  This noise can be reduced if a bigger fraction of B5 is sent to B5_d1 Sensitivity Aug 12th B1 shot noise B1 elec noise Frequency noise Incoherent sum Frequency noise

22 ILIAS WG1 – Perugia, September 19, 2005 G.Losurdo – INFN Firenze-Urbino 22 B5 setup modification 50 % 2f 50 % Data in W Pr_B5_DC,AC d1 d2 50 % 90 % quadrants 10 % Data in W Pr_B5_2f 10 % 2f 90 % Data in W Pr_B5_DC,AC d1 d2 90 % 10 % 95 % quadrants 5 % Data in W Pr_B5_2f Old setup New setup  Now B5_d2 is used for SSFS, with 3 times more power (80% instead of 25%)  Expected reduction of the frequency noise by a factor 2

23 ILIAS WG1 – Perugia, September 19, 2005 G.Losurdo – INFN Firenze-Urbino 23 B5 electronic and shot noise converted into a laser frequency noise by the SSFS loop  New optical setup : the SSFS error signal receives 3 times more power  Laser frequency noise should be decreased by 2 wrt C6 - B1_ACp, end of C6 - B1_ACp, Aug 23 (new setup) - Shot + electronic noise - Electronic noise Edwige Tournefier Aug 27  Laser frequency noise has been reduced but coherence with B1 still visible Laser 0 B5_ACp Laser frequency control loop (SSFS) B5: results

24 ILIAS WG1 – Perugia, September 19, 2005 G.Losurdo – INFN Firenze-Urbino 24 DAC noise  “Simple” DAC noise estimation does not explain the noise ( Hz) in the 27 Aug sensitivity  DAC noise larger when correction applied R.Gouaty
