Research interests

Personal webpage: http://www.physics.gla.ac.uk/igr/index.php?L1=members&L2=member&name=srowan

My research interests are directed at gravitational wave detection on the ground and in space. My research programme currently includes studies of ultra sensitive mechanical systems; investigation of materials of ultra-low mechanical loss and construction of mechanically-stable optical systems for interferometric applications.
