Last night were were able to checkout the SX AO system.

Everything worked as well as it did last Spring with the exception

of the Optical Gain. I tried all the fixes I know (restarting processed,

creating the c2m matrix in IDL) but the optical gain calculated was

100 times smaller than expected (0.001).

The DX fastlink alignment error occurred many more times tonight than

on the previous night. 18 failures. This problem wasted probably

30 minutes tonight and it seems to be getting worse.

**Guido, Armando: Should we try to reseat the fastlink fibers at the switch

BCU and at the AdSec?

We were able to test both the CentOS 6 and 7 versions of the AO Supervisor.

Progress was made with both.

The CentOS version seemed to work properly with the exceptions of

applying NPCA amplitudes. The Optical Gains seemed to work and

the Loop keep the Gain at a reasonable value (~0.3). However, when

I applied 50 nm of Z5, the value of Z5 coming back from the AdSec

remained 0.0

For the CentOS 7 version, the Save Optical Loop Data GUI crashed

when you clicked save. Xianyu will look into it.

I seemed to be able to get the Optical Gain loop to run under CentOS 7, with reasonable values,

but twice the Loop opened with Safe Skip Activated soon after the Optical

Gain was applied. I think this may be a generic Optical Gain problem and will

require input from Alfio.

There are also a few minor changes to the CentOS 7 version of the

AO Supervisor.

You can see more details in

I think are next AO testing of 6/7 is planned for Monday night.
