Abstract

In the drive for higher sensitivity in third generation gravitational wave detectors, the use of higher-order Laguerre-Gauss beams has emerged as a candidate method for reducing the limiting effects of thermal noise. I present a brief synopsis of the current state of Laguerre-Gauss beam technology, and the merits of employing Laguerre-Gauss beams in future gravitational wave detectors.
