LIGO Document T1100616-v2
- When a chamber containing a suspension is pumped down, the loss of buoyancy from the air causes a slight sag of the hanging masses, with implications for OSEM and EQ stop adjustment. -v2 of this document estimates the magnitude for quad TM, CP and ERM chains, and metal and glass builds of the BS/FM. Later versions will add estimates for other suspension types.
Betsy observes that the change in height during pumpdown is less than what is predicted in -v2 of this doc. See LHO log https://alog.ligo-wa.caltech.edu/aLOG/index.php?callRep=15887
The comment to that log (15892), by Brett, estimates that those observations are something like 80% of the prediction.
- -v2 adds calculations for BS/FM
