L1 LSC [Jun. 30th, 2011|09:39 pm]
Tobin Fricke's Lab Notebook


For future reference, here is a screen-shot of the LIGO Livingston (L1) length sensing and control (LSC) control screen in MEDM, while L1 was in low-noise (detection) mode. There's a full-size version too; also in github.

What this is: this is the control panel for the servos that control the mirrors in LIGO. Inputs come in on the left (from photodiodes). In the middle there are a bunch of filters with complicated transfer functions. Outputs go out to the right, pushing on the mirrors.

Where did you get this screenshot from? Is it just something you had posted in an elog?

I think I originally made it just to show MEDM running on my laptop:


Sadly, there are no others like it.
