Coating-free mirrors for high precision interferometric experiments

Gossler, Stefan; Cumpston, Jeffrey; McKenzie, K; Mow-Lowry, C; Gray, Malcolm B; McClelland, David

Description

Thermal noise in mirror optical coatings may not only limit the sensitivity of future gravitational-wave detectors in their most sensitive frequency band but is also a major impediment for experiments that aim to reach the standard quantum limit or cool mechanical systems to their quantum ground state. We present the design and experimental characterization of a highly reflecting mirror without any optical coating. This coating-free mirror is based on total internal reflection and...[Show more]
