LIGO Document T1200418-v4
- This is a writeup of a quick calculation to understand the measured violin mode Q of the MC2 suspension at LLO but is applicable to all HSTS. The interesting conclusion is that the violin mode Q is dominated by thermoelastic damping which has its peak nearby.
- Various refinements suggested by Jeff K, including a calculation of net thermal noise. Incorporate refitted Q’s from LLO alog 5280.
v4: Corrected typo error in equation (1.8) in docx and pdf files (radius has been replaced by diameter). This does not affect results. (Norna, 9th August 2014)
