I have been looking into whether we can observe squeezing on a short timescale. The simulations I show here say that we can get 2 dBvac of squeezing at about 120 Hz using extreme signal recycling.
The parameters used here are
- 100 ppm transmissivity on the folding mirrors giving a PRC gain of 40.
- 10 kΩ series resistance for the ETMs; 15 kΩ series resistance for the ITMs.
- 1 W incident on the back of PRM.
- PD quantum efficiency 0.88.
The first attachment shows the displacement noise. The red curve labeled vacuum is the standard unsqueezed vacuum noise which we need to beat. The second attachment shows the same noise budget as a ratio of the noise sources to the vacuum noise.
This homodyne angle and SRC detuning give about the maximum amount of squeezing. However, there's quite a bit of flexibility and if there are other considerations, such as 100 Hz being too low, we should be able to optimize these angles (even with more pessimistic values of the above parameters) to see at least 0.2 dBvac around 400 Hz. |
