LIGO Document T070260-v1
- Optickle is a general model for the electro-opto-mechanical part of an interferometric GW detector.
It ventures into mechanics only as far as is necessary to include radiation pressure effects, and into electronics only far enough to produce demodulation signals, and into optics only up to first order. There are many other tools that do all these things in greater detail. Optickle is for quick, but essentially complete interferometer design studies.
