Abstract

We report on measurements performed with the Glasgow prototype gravitational wave detector which has recently been converted to operate with a Nd:YAG laser at 1064 nm. The differential displacement amplitude spectral density above a few hundred Hz is 5x10 <sup>-19</sup> m/ [sqrt]Hz which is consistent with the limitations imposed by shot noise in this frequency range. We also present sensitivity spectra over a lower frequency regime to highlight the impact of improved suspension designs.
