Simulation investigation of mode hopping in the H1 signal recycling cavity

Document #:
Document type:
T - Technical notes
Other Versions:
During commissioning of the H1 dual-recycled Michelson interferometer (DRMI), the signal recycling cavity
(SRC) was observed to exhibit the phenomenon known commonly as mode-hopping. This note describes a simulation investigation into the causes of mode hopping in the H1 DRMI, and explores some methods for mitigating the associated problems.
