Laser bench noise injections

This afternoon we injected some mechanical noise to the laser bench by using the small shaker installed on the leg of the bench (see 47083). The mechanical effect was monitored by means of the accelerometer on the Laser bench, recently moved from vertical to horizontal (see 47078).
The noise injection parameters are reported below. In the attached plot the effect of the largest injected line at 20Hz, where there eems to be a clear resonance, is clrearly visible on both PRCL and DARM.

Analysis and projection of quiet condition will be performed shortly, but it seems likely that the bump in the quiet DARM at that frequency is correlated to the Laser bench resonance. If confirmed, mitigation actions will be studied.

In the attached plot , we show that during the shaking of laser bench, similar bumps are seen also in BsX channels.
