Nature Photonics Article

CMS, along with an international collaboration of scientists from the University of Vienna and JILA, a joint institute of the University of Colorado and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Boulder, CO, USA, published results today demonstrating a tenfold reduction in mechanical loss in high-reflectivity optical coatings. The work, reported in Nature Photonics, represents an entirely new approach for generating high-performance optical coatings, key components of state-of-the art optical cavities for precision measurement.
