-Note on the source resistor R<​sub>​S</​sub>​ and the AWG output of the ADALM2000. The AWG output has a 50 Ω series output resistance and you will need to include it along with the external resistance in series with its output. Also because of the relatively high gain of your design you will need an input signal with a small amplitude of around 100mV. Rather than turning down the AWG in software it would be better from a noise point of view to insert a resistor voltage divider between the AWG output and your circuit input to attenuate the signal. Using something like that shown in figure 4 will provide both an attenuation factor of 1/8 and a 60Ω equivalent source resistance. Other combinations of resistor values are of course also possible based on what you have available.+Note on the source resistor R<​sub>​S</​sub>​ and the AWG output of the ADALM2000.

 For further experimentation replace each capacitor with ones that are factors of 2 and 10 larger and smaller than your design values and re-measure the response curve with the Network Analyzer instrument. Do this to only one capacitor at a time to observe its individual effect on the response. Explain the changes in the response that you see. For further experimentation replace each capacitor with ones that are factors of 2 and 10 larger and smaller than your design values and re-measure the response curve with the Network Analyzer instrument.
