Abstract:
The loss angles of Silica and (plain and Titania-doped) Tantala have been estimated from the direct measurement of coating thermal noise using the TNI.
A simple predictive model for composite material properties based on EMT gives results for the doped Tantala loss angle which are consistent with the above findings.
