Part 1: creep noise Ageev et al. 97 Cagnoli et al.97 De Salvo et al. 97, 98, 05, 08
Quakes in suspension fibers defects Sudden localized stress release: non-Gaussian (probably), statistics not well-understood, intensity and frequency not well-measured. No guarantee that it is unimportant in LIGO II or III Standard lore: couples through random fiber extension and Earth curvature. KAGRA very different b/c of inclined floor Much larger direct coupling exists for LIGO. Top and bottom defects much more important. Levin 2012
Part 2: Reciprocity relations If you flick the cow’s nose it will wag its tail. If someone then wags the cow’s tail it will ram you with its nose. Provided that the cow is non-dissipative and follows laws of elastodynamics the coupling in both directions is the same
Reciprocity relations Force density Readout variable displacement form-factor
Reciprocity relations Force density Readout variable displacement form-factor is invariant with respect to interchange of and
Random superposition of creep events parameters, e.g. location, volume, strength of the defect. Fourier transform Probability distribution function Caveat: in many “crackle noise” system the events are not independent
Conclusions for creep: Simple method to calculate elasto-dynamic response to creep events Direct coupling to transverse motion Response the strongest for creep events near fibers’ ends => Bonding!
Part 4: thermal deformations of mirrors High-temperature region Not an issue for advanced KAGRA. Major issue for LIGO & Virgo Zernike polynomials New coordinates cf. Hello & Vinet 1990 Treat this as a readout variable
How to calculate Apply pressure to the mirror face Calculate trace of the induced deformation tensor Have to do it only once! Calculate the thermal deformation Young modulus Thermal expansion Temperature perturbation King, Levin, Ottaway, Veitch in prep.

Part 6: opto-mechanics with interfaces Question: how does the mode frequency change when dielectric interface moves? Theorem: Mode energy Interface displacement Optical pressure on the interface Useful for thermal noise calculations from e.g. gratings (cf. Heinert et al. 2013)
