Resumo

We present the characterisation of the most recent parametric transducers designed to enhance the Mario Schenberg gravitational wave detector sensitivity. The transducer is composed of a microwave re-entrant cavity that attaches to the gravitational wave antenna via a rigid spring. It functions as a three-mode mass-spring system; motion of the spherical antenna couples to a 50 mu m thick membrane, which converts its mechanical motion into a frequency shift of the cavity resonance. Through the optical spring effect, the microwave transducer frequency-displacement sensitivity was measured to be 726 MHz mu m(-1) at 4 K. The spherical antenna detection sensitivity is determined analytically using the transducer amplification gain and equivalent displacement noise in the test setup, which are 5.5 x 10(11) V m(-1) and 1.8 x 10(-19) m root Hz(-1), respectively.
