Second-generation interferometric gravitational-wave detectors will be operating at the Standard Quantum Limit (SQL), a sensitivity limitation set by the trade off between measurement accuracy and quantum back action, which is governed by the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle. We review several schemes that allows the quantum noise of interferometers to surpass the SQL significantly over a broad frequency band. Such schemes may be an important component of the design of third-generation detectors.
