Example: ifo_clean

0 This example program uses remove_spectral_lines() to automatically identify and remove ``spectral lines" from the output of the 40-meter IFO. To run this program, be sure to set the data path environment variable, for example:
setenv GRASP_DATAPATH /usr/local/GRASP/data/19nov94.3
The program outputs graphs in a two files called ifo_clean_data.out and ifo_clean_spec.out, containing the before/after time series and spectra. These may be viewed with xmgr by typing:
xmgr -nxy ifo_clean_data.out
and
xmgr -nxy ifo_clean_spec.out
to start up the xmgr graphing program.

The output of this program is a list of lines removed:

Virtually all of these lines can be identified as either 60 Hz line harmonics, or as specific suspension and pendulum modes. The removal of these lines makes a dramatic difference to the appearance (and sound of) the signal, as shown in Figure [*]. Note that the amplitudes of the lines above are properly normalized (in ADC units). For example the 180 Hz line harmonic is well described by . By far the largest amplitude lines are the three violin modes at 578.662, 582.426, and 597.936 Hz, and the 180 and 300 Hz line harmonics. Most of the structure visible in Figure [*] is the result of these five harmonics.

Figure: Output of the example program ifo_clean, making use of remove_spectral_lines() to automatically identify and remove ``spectral line" features from the (whitened) output of the Caltech 40-meter interferometer. The black curve and the red curve show the before/after time series and spectra. We have deliberately choosen a stretch of data immediately after the IFO locks, so that the suspension and pendulum modes are excited.
