Opto-mechanical noise cancellation
The experiments presented in this thesis investigate the interaction between radiation and an optical cavity, in which one mirror of the cavity is mounted on a flexure which could be moved by radiation pressure. The cavity was shown to exhibit non-linear behaviour with high input power. The radiation pressure force was shown to change the mechanical resonance frequency of the moveable mirror. Motion was induced through amplitude modulation of a high power input beam and the extent of this...[Show more]
