LIGO Document G1800345-v1
- The Hanford ITMx was removed after O2 due to a high absorption spot. The optic had been examined and cleaned in-chamber, May 2017. The absorption persisted.
A feature was found at the location predicted by TCS. This feature is highly absorbing. A feature at this location was present in the scatter scans of the optic as received from the coater. Several other post-coating absorbers over 20 ppm were found in the center 60 mm of the optic.
