Question: Regarding length of the PRC.

I tried to optimise the power in the PRC in the plane wave approximation by varying the total length of the cavity and I am getting peaks at somewhere around 321m and 304m. Now, as I understand it, these are peaks are where both the 9MHz and 45MHz side bands are resonant. Do we use […]

Difference in transfer functions of modulation of space and modulation of mirrors

Question: In reference to Task 1, for sheet 13, the above plot is in relation to modulating the space of the cavities, i.e., changing the length of both the cavities. The plot below is modulating the position of the mirror. What is the reason for the difference between the two plots? Theoretically, both the processes […]
