LIGO is exploring cryogenics as a technique of last resort to reduce the thermal noise of mirrors and suspensions in gravitational wave interferometric detectors. Some of the cryogenic, or cryogenic-related, R&D done at LIGO is reported here. Some ideas being considered to make cryogenics possible may be useful even for room temperature detectors.
