Synopsis

In this thesis, ultimate sensitive measurement for

weak force imposed on a suspended mirror is performed with the help of a laser

and an optical cavity for the development of gravitational-wave detectors.

According to the Heisenberg uncertainty principle, such measurements are

subject to a fundamental noise called quantum noise, which arises from the

quantum nature of a probe (light) and a measured object (mirror). One of the

sources of quantum noise is the quantum back-action, which arises from the

vacuum fluctuation of the light. It sways the mirror via the momentum

transferred to the mirror upon its reflection for the measurement. The author

discusses a fundamental trade-off between sensitivity and stability in the

macroscopic system, and suggests using a triangular cavity that can avoid this

trade-off. The development of an optical triangular cavity is described and its

characterization of the optomechanical effect in the triangular cavity is

demonstrated. As a result, for the first time in the world the quantum back-action

imposed on the 5-mg suspended mirror is significantly evaluated. This work

contributes to overcoming the standard quantum limit in the future.
