In recent years an increasing number of devices and experiments are shown to be limited by mechanical thermal noise. In particular sub-Hertz laser frequency stabilization and gravitational wave detectors, that are able to measure fluctuations of 10-18 m/√(Hz) or less, are being limited by thermal noise in the dielectric coatings deposited on mirrors.
