Abstract
Diffraction gratings have been considered as input couplers for Fabry–Perot cavities in future gravitational wave detectors. We experimentally demonstrate the use of a triple-suspended, diffractively coupled cavity and examine conventional Pound–Drever–Hall length sensing and control techniques to maintain the required operating condition. Utilizing the diffractively coupled Fabry–Perot cavity, we investigate the effects associated with translational grating motion and observe a unique 1/f slope in the magnitude of the frequency response when monitoring the forward-reflected error signal.
