Upper limits on mechanical loss due to surface polishing

The goal of this research activity was to determine if the polishing of silica substrate surfaces could affect the mechanical loss angle, and eventually contribute to thermal noise for Advanced LIGO.
The experimental measurements show that this effect is likely negligible.
