The modecleaner system and suspension aspects of GEO 600

Abstract

GEO 600 uses two 8 m triangular ring cavities as a modecleaner system for the stabilization of the laser. To isolate the cavities with respect to the seismic noise the optical components are suspended as double pendulums. The resonances of these pendulums are damped by a local-control loop via magnet–coil actuators acting on the intermediate masses. The… (More)
