- Springer 2013; US$ 129.00
With his Ph.D. thesis, presented here in the format of a 'Springer Theses', Paul Fulda won the 2012 GWIC thesis prize awarded by the Gravitational Wave International Committee. The impact of thermal noise on future gravitational wave detectors depends on the size and shape of the interrogating laser beam. It had been known since 2006 that, in theory,... more...
