==== Report for week of 9/24 ====
 * Monday 9/24 was a holiday (Autumn Equinox).
==== Report for week of 10/8 ====
 * This was Panwei's last week (for now at least) - thanks for all the help!
 * Thanks also to Terrence for visiting again for the week.
===== SR3 =====
 * Terrence and Mark finished setting up the LEN half of the OL (Simon had roughly placed the components). They ran a new cable for LEN in the cable tray and relaid the cable for TILT to get it off the floor.
 * Terrence worked on diagonalizing the LEN OL. A report is forthcoming.
===== SRM =====
 * Mark installed a pair of power supplies in the SRM and copied settings across to the SRM real-time model.
 * Fabian did lots of rack cabling, including installing and connecting BIO cards.
 * Mark and Hirata-san checked and adjusted the pitch of the BF (with a bubble level) and the IM/... section (with the OL.
 * Mark and Panwei installed the sides of the IRM and the IM OSEMs.
 * Hirata-san hung the dummy load from the F0 and started compressing the blade. There was a significant lateral offset (≈2-3 mm towards the blade at 5:30) at first but Takahashi-san advised that it would probably improve with compression, and it did.
 * Mark and Hirata-san cleared off most of two optical tables and a set of shelves in the OMMT area that Type B had been using but were now required by Somiya-san and Ohishi-san. We still need to remove the geophone and OSEM testing setups.
Line 9: Line 21:
 * We moved all the SR2 feedthrough and in-vacuum and in-air cables.
 * We tested all the OSEMs and most of the LVDTs. We still need to run power to the pico drivers, and test them and the steppers.
 * We unlocked and mostly realigned the suspension. The IM is sitting lower than before but can be brought up to nominal height with BF GAS offset, without any signs of anything touching. The IM also has a moderately large pitch (2.8 mrad according to the OSEMs, about 1 mrad according to the OL) and some roll, which we expect to be able to correct with some pico adjustment. The horizontal IM OSEMs are well-centered (so there is no yaw misalignment).
 * Mark, Enzo and Hirata-san all inspected the lower section of the SR2 to see if there were any interference points that might explain some unexpected peaks in the TFs that weren't present before installation. There were no stops touching, but some TM OSEM cables were rubbing against each other. [??? Did the fix work?]
 * We removed the tank lid, and Enzo and Panwei inspected the cabling that had been done during Enzo's vacation and installed some new cables that had arrived. They also unlocked the IP.

==== Plan for week of 10/15 ====
 * Mark, Enzo, Hirata-san and Fabian at Kamioka Mon-Fri.
===== SR2=====
 * Continue shakedown.
Line 14: Line 29:
 * We made another attempt to set the pitch of the SRM, but weren't satisfied with how close we were able to get (target 20 mm low, achieved 23 mm), so we didn't tighten the clamps or continue to setting the pitch of the RM.

==== Plan for week of 10/1 ====
 * Mark, Hirata-san, Fabian, Panwei at Kamioka Mon-Fri.
===== SRM =====
 * Set pitch of SRM and RM, tighten clamps, remove winch system.
 * Weigh IM/... section.
 * Build up SS to BF level.
 * Add BF.
 * Suspend IM and tweak height/balance.
 * Cable/test BF.
 * Install IRM.
 * Install/cable/test IM OSEMs.

==== Plan for week of 10/8 ====
 * Monday 10/8 is Sports Day.
 * Enzo returns Tuesday 10/9.
 * Mark and Terrence (plus TBD) at Kamioka Mon-Fri.
 * Enzo, Hirata-san, Fabian and Panwei at Kamioka Tue-Fri.
===== SR2/SR3 =====
 * Terrence to set up LEN half of SR3 OL and, time permitting, TILT and LEN for SR2.
===== SRM =====
 * Continue installation.
 * Align IRM with IM.
 * Suspend/weigh/balance the BF/... section.
 * Build up the AF and SS to the SF level.
 * Install the SF.
