The script that cycles the Compton laser lock on and off should be run from the vncserver on compton (compton:005). I typically run it in a terminal from the bottom left workspace.

The script is located in:

/home/compton/gaskelld/cavity_script

And should be run as follows:

cavity_C_gaskell flip <bcm_threshold> <time_off> <time_on> <power_threshold>

Flags:

  1. "flip" means cycle the laser on and off.
  2. bcm_threshold: minimum beam current for script to execute
  3. time_off: time for laser off period in seconds
  4. time_on: time for laser on in seconds
  5. power_threshold: cavity power threshold above which the time_on counter begins


I typically run the script as follows:

cavity_C_gaskell flip -1 30 90 100
