finesse.locks.Lock

Overview

class finesse.locks.Lock(name, *args, **kwargs)[source]

Bases: ModelElement

A simple lock which computes and applies the feedback to a given parameter using an error signal.

Parameters
namestr

Name of newly created lock.

error_signalAny

An error signal parameter or an object capable of producing a real-type error signal. This is typically a demodulated PowerDetector instance (or the name of the instance).

feedbackParameter

gainfloat

Control loop gain.

accuracyfloat

Threshold to decide whether the loop is locked.

disabledboolean

The error signal of the lock.

Lock.feedback

A handle to the parameter which the feedback signal is applied to.
