Lasers and optics: looking towards third generation gravitational wave detectors

Mavalvala, Nergis; McClelland, David; Mueller, Guido; Reitze, D; Schnabel, Roman; Willke, B


Third generation terrestrial interferometric gravitational wave detectors will likely require significant advances in laser and optical technologies to reduce two of the main limiting noise sources: thermal noise due to mirror coatings and quantum noise arising from a combination of shot noise and radiation pressure noise. Increases in laser power and possible changes of the operational wavelength require new high power laser sources and new electro-optic modulators and Faraday isolators....[Show more]
