Subject: Thermoelastic noise from substrate  

I corrected the code for substrate thermoelastic noise (TE) in my noise budget. The substrate thermoelastic of 8 inch cavity will not be a problem, but it will be comparable to coating thermal noise around 10 Hz for 1.45" cavity.


     After reviewing the papers about measurement of thermoelastic noise in substrate, I realized that I have not fixed my calculation for substrate TE as noted in both publications by Numata et al (2003) and Black et al (2004). Apparently, the calculation from Cerdonio et al(2003) uses different notion of beam radius, and misses one factor of pi.  The new result is plotted below. It is about a factor of 1.5 higher than the old one at adiabatic limit (high f), but it is still smaller than the estimated coating thermal noise, see figure 1.


fig1: TE noise is corrected and plotted in comparison with the previous result.

     However, for a planned 1.45" long cavity, due to the smaller spot size on the mirror, TE noise is very close to the coating thermal noise around 3 Hz up to50 Hz, see figure 2 below. So this will be another issue to keep in mind.  Note: shot noise seems to be very high, I'll double check the result again if it is correct or not. I just changed the cavity length parameter and ran the code to get the result.
