**Automated simulations: choosing modulation frequencies à la**Advanced LIGO Stefan Hild, M.Mantovani, A.Perreca and A. Freise Advanced Virgo meeting, August 2008**Outline**• Context and Motivation for automated detector design. • A preliminary length sensing and control scheme for Advanced Virgo a la Advanced Ligo • OSD-Tool functions: an easy way to get an optimized detector configuration. • Optimizing the mirror ROCs • Choosing the optimal modulation frequencies • Finding the optimal length of the Power Recycling cavity • Choosing the Schnupp length • Finding the optimal length of the Signal Recycling cavity Advanced Virgo, 15th of August 2008**The context of this work**• THE FACT: One deliverable of my postdoc position is a preliminary length sensing and control scheme. • THE HISTORY: When my project was granted and started … there were no subsystems and no Advanced Virgo ISC group. • THE STATUS:The work I show here should NOT be seen as competition to ISC, but rather as potential supplement. Advanced Virgo, 15th of August 2008**Introduction: Why to do automated design of the Ad-Virgo**configuration • We need to do plenty of simulations for Advanced Virgo • Many of these simulation task are fairly big constructs (for instance producing control matrix) • Many parameters are not fixed and might change several times within the next year or so • For instance: mod frequencies, beam size, ... • Many design options are available which might completely change everything • For instance degenerate recycling cavities • We will have to do the simulations many times, with several parameter set, several optimization criteria … Advanced Virgo, 15th of August 2008**OSD-Tools**• OSD-tools are a collection of Matlab functions and scripts: • Providing the possibility of an automated parameter optimization of an Advanced Virgo detector configuration. • OSD-Tools work together with Finesse • Reading in parameters from Finesse input files. • Running Finesse simulations within Matlab • Writing the optimised parameters back to Finesse input Files. • Please note: Finesse is just one tool. We can also use analytical calculations or other simulation software such as Optickle or GWINC with the OSD_tools. (We choose Finesse for convenience). Advanced Virgo, 15th of August 2008**Definition of lengths**• Lengths are macroscopic distances (with a maximal accuracy of millimeter). • Length of PR cavity: • Length of SR cavity: • Schnupp length: Advanced Virgo, 15th of August 2008**Definition of the interferometer degrees of freedom**• Degrees of freedom correspond to microscopic mirror positions, i.e. their tunings. • For DC-readout we need a dark fringe offset => transmit TEM00 carrier to output port. Advanced Virgo, 15th of August 2008**Our preliminary length sensing scheme: Copying the ALIGO**approach • The LSC spend years of R&D (simulations, table top experiments, 40m prototype) to develop the ALIGO ISC. • For simplicity we copied their approach for our preliminary length sensing and control scheme. • Some aspects of higher order modes are included. • We do not take lock acquisition into account. (We start from a locked system) Advanced Virgo, 15th of August 2008**What order do use for parameter optimization ??**• There is natural order in which the optimization has to be carried out !! Primary optimisation Full control matrix (5xN-matrix) Calculate Figure of merit: Controlability of the system Fine tuning Quadratic control matrix (5x5) Advanced Virgo, 15th of August 2008**Optimising the mirror ROCs**• The actual beam size at the mirrors is determined by the radii of curvature (ROC) of the mirrors. • For a given beam size we calculate the required mirror ROCs. • Input:Beam size • Output: new ROCs of IMX, EMX, IMY, EMY, PRM and SRM. • Function:OSD_ROC.m Advanced Virgo, 15th of August 2008**Choosing optimal modulation frequencies (I)**• Requirement 1: Modulations should not be resonant inside the arm cavities. • Requirement 2: Higher order optical modes of the modulation sidebands should also not be resonant inside the arm cavities. (For our analysis we consider all orders up to 6) • Requirement 3: We want 2 modulation frequencies. One to readout the PRC, one two read out the SR cavity. • Both frequencies have to be resonant in the PRC. • If we choose f1 to be at the 1st FSR of the PRC, then f2 has to be a harmonic of f1: Advanced Virgo, 15th of August 2008**Choosing optimal modulation frequencies (II)**• Requirement 4: The modulations sidebands should not be exactly anti-resonant inside the arm cavities. • For modulation indicies of 0.2 to 0.3 about 10% of the modulation appears in the first harmonic (2f) • If f is chosen to be exactly anti-resonant, then 2f will be exactly resonant inside the arm cavities !! • Requirement 5: Also all optical higher order modes should not be anti resonant inside the arm cavities. Advanced Virgo, 15th of August 2008**Choosing optimal modulation frequencies (III)**• For each potential set of f1 and f2 we calculate the distance of +f1, -f1, +f2 and -f2 to resonance and anti-resoance inside the arm cavity (8 values) • We do the same for all higher order optimal modes up to 6th order ((1+6)x8 = 56 values) Advanced Virgo, 15th of August 2008**Choosing optimal modulation frequencies (III)**Modulation sideband of optical higher order mode (l+m) has the frequency: With transversal mode spacing given by (Note: TMS changes with the mirror ROCs) 28 distances to resonance: Take the minimum distance out of this 56 values as figure of merit. 28 distances to anti-resonance: Advanced Virgo, 15th of August 2008**Choosing optimal modulation frequencies (V)**Minimum distance • Find minimum distance for each modulation frequency. • Scan over a certain range of frequencies. • Choose the one with the largest minimal distance • Input:Freq range, M (f2 = M x f1) • Output: f1, f2. • Function:OSD_modfreq.m Advanced Virgo, 15th of August 2008**Choosing the length of PRC**• The length of PRC is chosen to make both modulation sidebands resonant inside the PRC: • Input:N, f1, rough length of PRC. • Output: L_prc, readjusted ROC of PRM • Function:OSD_PRC_length.m Advanced Virgo, 15th of August 2008**Choosing Schnupp length and SRC length**Optical power inside the SRC • Requirement: f2 resonant inside SRC, while f1 not resonant in SRC (maximum decoupling). • We find f2 resonant for two different Schnupp lengths (short and long option). Need to decide for one option. • Finally we choose the SRC length to make f2 resonant inside the SRC. Short long Schnupp length Advanced Virgo, 15th of August 2008**Choosing Schnupp length and SRC length**Optical power inside the SRC • Input:Schnupp option (short or long), rough length of SRC. • Output: L_Schnupp, length of SRC, readjusted ROC of SRM • Function:OSD_SR_Schnupp.m Short long Schnupp length Advanced Virgo, 15th of August 2008**Building a chain of OSD-tool functions**• The first OSD-function (OSD_ROC) reads in a full Advanced Virgo parameter set from a FINESSE input file. • The optimized parameters are written back to a new Finesse file, which is then read in by the next function. And so on and so on… • The last function finally writes the fully optimised parameter set. Advanced Virgo, 15th of August 2008**Primary Optimisation**Primary optimisation • Using the OSD-tool function we can perform the full primary optimization with a Matlab script of 4 Lines. • Example 1: In case we decide to change the beam size … you only have to change one number in the script and run it again. • Example 2: In case we change the thickness of the BS … you only change it in the Finesse input file and rerun the script Advanced Virgo, 15th of August 2008**Primary Optimisation**Primary optimisation • Using the OSD-tool function we can perform the full primary optimization with a Matlab script of 4 Lines. • Example 1: In case we decide to change the beam size … you only have to change one number in the script and run it again. • Example 2: In case we change the thickness of the BS … you only change it in the Finesse input file and rerun the script OSD-tools provide an easy and automated way to calculate an optimized Advanced Virgo detector configuration. Advanced Virgo, 15th of August 2008**Availability and Documentation**• All OSD-tool functions and input files are stored in a subversion repository including backup and version control. • This svn is accessible to everyone: • Server: svn://lnx0.sr.bham.ac.uk • Repository: adv-osd • If there is interest we can build OSD-tools for working with Optickle or other simulation software of interest. • For more detailed information please have a look at: S.Hild et al “Advanced Virgo design: The Advanced LIGO approach for choosing modulation frequencies”, Virgo note, VIR-066A-08.

Need to optimize demodulation phases. Especially with detuned SR one cannot expect to have maximum signal for demodulation phase equal 0 or 90 deg. Function available: OSD_optimization.m Fine tuning OSD_submatrix.m Need to provide sufficient Signal to shot noise ratio at all detection ports.
