Surface charge control of the Advanced LIGO mirrors using externally introduced ions

Document #:
Document type:
T - Technical notes
Other Versions:
The surface charge on the LIGO mirrors can be neutralized by introducing positive and negative ions in a clean carrier gas. The note describes a system developed to neutralize surface charge densities as large as 10^-10 coulombs/cm^2 on the mirrors in the BSC chambers.
