This is a tool to calculate Brownian thermal noise in dielectric mirror stacks.
It supports noise calculations for n-layer stacks of any material, but it has only been tested in the following scenarios:
- Two-material stacks using data from the [Advanced LIGO](https://www.advancedligo.mit.edu/) noise calculator, [GWINC](https://awiki.ligo-wa.caltech.edu/aLIGO/GWINC) (link requires albert.einstein style credentials, available to members of the LIGO Scientific Community only)
- A three-material stack using a single data point from [Steinlechner et al.](http://journals.aps.org/prd/abstract/10.1103/PhysRevD.91.042001)
- Two-material stacks using data from the [Advanced LIGO](https://www.advancedligo.mit.edu/) noise calculator, [GWINC](https://awiki.ligo-wa.caltech.edu/aLIGO/GWINC) (link requires albert.einstein style credentials, available to members of the LIGO Scientific Community only) - agreement: within 5%
- A three-material stack using a single data point from [Steinlechner et al.](http://journals.aps.org/prd/abstract/10.1103/PhysRevD.91.042001) - agreement: within 15%
The code can calculate arbitrary material stacks due to an extension to a two-material Brownian thermal noise calculation provided in scientific literature. The extension is unpublished and probably wrong, but this is hopefully the beginning of something that will one day produce trusted results. Due to the lack of systematic testing, take what this script says with a heavy pinch of salt - you have been warned!
