  1. STREGA - WP2-Task C: Design of advanced cryogenic suspensions Year 1 - 2004 C-1:Cryogenic last-stage suspensions (interferometers) (F.Ricci-G.Frossati) Objectives: -Design new suspension elements for the last stage of interferometers. -Achieve a low noise remote control of the mirror position using cryogenic sensors -Assemble and test of a full-scale prototype of cryogenic final stage C-2:Cryogenics suspensions for advanced interferometers (G.Frossati-M.Bassan)- Objectives: -Two 1.2 ton spheres with their suspension assembled and measurements of Q and thermal noise at low temperature performed. C-3: Cryogenics suspension system for interferometers (S.Braccini-M.Bassan) Objectives: -The entire apparatus be located in a cryogenic environment; the extra noise coming from the cryogenic system be studied and made negligible. -Full cryogenic suspension be assembled and tested Participants:
