Analysis of sub-shot noise power recycled Michelson interferometer

McKenzie, Kirk; Buchler, Benjamin; Shaddock, Daniel; Lam, Ping Koy; McClelland, David


The sensitivity of interferometric gravitational wave detectors is ultimately limited by the 'quantum noise' of light. In this paper we compare results from a bench-top experiment and a theoretical model which show how squeezed states of light may be used to modify the quantum noise behaviour of a power recycled Michel son interferometer. We develop a simple theoretical model of the experiment and find close agreement of theoretical and experimental results. We measure quantum noise suppression...[Show more]
