  * Kozu-kun noticed the BS OL was out of range, and Fabian and Fujii-kun investigated. It turns out that the temperature has risen by over 2°C, so all the GAS filters have sagged and several stages are touching. Miyoki-san and Furuta-san are looking at what can be done.
  * We ordered three more geophone cables in the standard (non-flipped pinout) to save time during the December vent, where we will replace at least two of the preamps to fix issues and take the opportunity to put in non-flipped ones.
  * Fabian did some debugging on the BS and found that the calibration for the F0 LVDT was off due to an Excel error, and that the sag wasn't quite the 7 mm originally observed, but still enough to cause the suspension to touch down. Enzo tried applying LVDT actuation at the GAS filters and got it to lift off far enough to get sensible TFs, but the required BF offset was enough to put the IM OSEMs at the very edge of their usable range, so this is not a good long-term solution. We can probably raise the F0 keystone during the vent by removing mass and/or installing an auxiliary spring, which will then allow us to return the BF keystone to nominal height.
  * While working on the BS, Enzo noticed that one of the stepper drivers was not responding. It turned out to be water damaged from the rain issues earlier in the year. Enzo and Fujii-kun opened the rest of the BS chassises on the second floor but they seem to be OK. Tanaka-san had made a third driver chassis as a spare, so we reserved that and will install it in the week of 12/10.

  * We cabled all the SF/... through to the rack and checked that all items worked.
  * We did the vertical height survey and found that as with SR2 and SR3, the chain is longer than the CAD, this time by ≈7 mm, and again mostly between the SF and BF. We decided on a keystone height of 11.5 mm (5 mm higher than CAD), which can be achieved with 1 kg more on the SF and 1 kg in reserve for a yaw stepper mechanism. We reset the height of the yoke to give near-zero LVDT output for the new nominal height, and corrected the sensing and actuation signs, but still need to do the calibration.
  * The final SRM small glass mirror became available, so we had Hirose-san ship it to us so we can install it while the suspension is still on the assembly frame. Hirata-san ordered shims to make up the new recommended thickness of 1.4 mm and a micrometer to check the combination, which should arrive on Monday 11/26.
  * Enzo took calibration data for the last batch of geophones, for SRM. We had to borrow cables from SR2 because one cable was missing and another was miswired. And it turned out that one of the SR2 cables was defective as well. But if we can find two possibly borrowed by Okutomi-san and rewire one, we should have enough for SR2 and SRM. The geophones appear to be healthy and we will seal them next week.
  * We raised the PI clear of the assembly frame and unlocked and centered the IP. We calibrated the IP LVDTs, and reversed connections to get positive LVDT output for positive yaw. We borrowed a HPCD from SR3-IM-V for the SRM IP but haven't checked the actuation yet.
  
  * The SRM-W optic arrived and we installed it in place of the SRM-M in the metal mass, taking care to use 1.4 mm shims as recommended by Hirose-san. The weight of the new assembly was within 1 g of the old and did not disturb the height of the payload. There was a very small change in pitch which we corrected with the IM picos.
  * We installed the shelf for the OL receiver.
  * We added the arc weights and geophones and went through several rounds of improving the centering of the IP and then realigning the security structure back to vertical.
  * We calibrated the F0 LVDT, and checked the F0 and IP actuation signs.
  * We adjusted the SF trim masses to set the SF pitch and roll, did an inventory of the trim mass and set the damper gap.
  * We did a final alignment of the whole chain and left the suspension ready for TFs during the f2f week. There is only a few hours of work left before we can install and we hope to do that on Monday 12/10.
Line 18: Line 18:
  * While we were grabbing geophone cables from SR2, we added extra arc weights to get the IP frequency below 0.1 Hz.
  * Akutsu-san showed us how to install the OL transmitter support pillar, receiver shelf and viewports. We believe we have the parts to finish setting up the SR2 OL.
 
  * Enzo replaced the geophones and cables that had been borrowed for calibration and did several rounds of optimization of the IP frequency. He got as low as 46 mHz but with poor Q and so backed off a bit to 55 mHz and may back off a tiny bit more.
  * I derived updated IP matrices for the BS and SR, with more precise geometry data provided by Hirata-san, and published them as T1707205 and T1807663.
  * I created a CENTERING screen for the IP, with large panel meters for the LVDT signals and the derived L, T and Y signals.
  * Enzo confirmed that the fancy stepper control screen created by Shoda-san worked.
  * We installed a modified LPCD as IM-V for testing.
 * SR3
  * We moved HPCDs from BS and SR2 to replace the ones that had been stolen from SR3, so as to create a working suspension with an OL for Kozu-kun.
