With the second generation of gravitational wave detectors being built, many researchers within the gravitational wave community are now considering the technological advances needed to build the next generation of detectors. The advances necessary to make even more sensitive detectors cover such diverse fields as materials science, optics, seismology, metrology, and much more. This talk covers some interesting experiments and ideas currently being explored within the LIGO Science Collaboration in pursuit of ever more sensitive gravitational wave detectors.
