1 Task M2 – Advanced Materials and Techniques for Resonant Detectors Motivation : Reduce thermal noise contribution to the acoustic detector noise budget.

2 Task M2 – General Strategy A) Reduce thermal noise power spectrum 1)Find the materials with the lowest mechanical and/or electrical dissipation and suitable to be cooled down at cryogenic temperatures (Mo,Be,SiC,CuAl,….) 2)Find the assembling and joining procedures that preserve the Q- factor of the material (explosion welding, silica bonding…)

3 Task M2 – General Strategy B) Reduce the relative contribution of thermal noise (i.e. increase the transducer efficiency  ) Surface treatments, two faces transducer,.. For the capacitive transducer:  is proportional to the Electric bias field For the optical transducer:  is prop. to the laser Power 1/2 time the Finesse  is prop. to the laser Power 1/2 time the Finesse
