Good Work Deep,

Can you include the equations that you used to calculated these expressions?

 Quote: The analytical expressions for thermal noise, as calculated by Liu & Thorne and Levin, was plotted as a function of frequency in a log - log plot using Matlab. The value of the parameters were used from Levin's paper on  thermal noise. phi = 1*10-7 (loss angle) r0 = 1.56*10-2  (beam radius) T = 300 K (temperature) E0 = 7.18*1010   (Young's modulus) sigma = 0.16 (Poisson ratio) The value of Sx(100) that given in Levin's paper (8.7*10-40 m2 /Hz) while the Liu-Thorne value is 9.1*10-40 m2 /Hz. The Liu Thorne expression being

S = 4*kb*T/(pi*f) * (1 - sigma^2) / (2*sqrt(pi)*E*sqrt(2)*r0) * phi

That of Levin goes as

S = 4*kb*T/f * (1 - sigma^2) / (pi^3*E*r0) *I*phi

sigma : Poisson ratio

phi : loss angle
