Experiments relating to concepts for extending interferometer operation, particularly at low frequencies, are discussed. This includes work with suspensions connected by a suspension-point interferometer. A new concept for achieving similar frequency extension without requiring an additional interferometer between suspensions is outlined, as well as a technique for improving positioning of laser beams relative to centres of gravity of test masses in gravity-wave interferometers and other instruments.
