The attached figures show that the two techniques agree to better than 20% of the GWINC output, with most of the mismatch at higher frequencies. I'm not yet sure why that is. It could be due to my improved integration in calculating Evans' thick coating correction, it could be due to my using a different form of the equation for Braginsky's finite substrate correction for the thermo-elastic noise, or it could just be due to some minor differences in the precision of some of the input values. ..

 

 

 I checked the calculation. I think most of the discrepancies are from the thick coating correction calculation (from Evans etal paper). The error is frequency dependent, and the calculations that involve frequency dependence are temperature fluctuation and thick coating correction. The temperature fluctuations are the same from our results. So it is most likely the thick coating correction. I checked and the corrections did differ at high frequency.

 I need to take a closer look to tell exactly where the errors are. Since the error is small and only at high frequency (around the shot noise limit, 10kHz),  I don't think it will be a problem for us.
