Computational Models of Lasers for Future Gravitational Wave Detectors
In this project you will adapt an advanced set of modeling tools to predict the performance of these lasers and help optimise the performance of 2 µm lasers we are developing.
High brightness, low noise lasers are critical for the next generation of future of gravitational wave detectors. In all likelihood these lasers will be 2 µm fibre lasers.
This project is part of the research program within the ARC Centre of Excellence for Gravitational Wave Discovery (OzGrav), and includes research toward upgrading the sensitivity of the current generation of detectors, analysing data from those detectors and the development of technology for future detectors.
