New Quantum Measurement Center Launched by Sherman Fairchild Foundation Grant

Ann Motrunich
A new grant enables construction of laboratories at Caltech that will integrate gravitational-wave science and quantum precision measurement.
Tabletop optics in a laboratory that steer laser light as it is used to measure vibrations in a glass disk that serves as an experimental stand-in for a mirror in the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO). The experiment aims to improve LIGO mirror coatings. New coatings c twan reduce background noise in LIGO's mirrors by a factor of two, thereby increasing the volume of space that LIGO can probe by a factor of eight.
