Paper Abstract

Thermodynamical fluctuations of temperature in microspheres transform to fluctuations of its resonance frequencies due to coefficient of thermal refraction. These fluctuations produce additional phase and amplitude noise in the output of the cavity. The implications of this noise for laser stabilization and other applications are discussed. Experimental conditions for the direct observation of this new effect are given.
