This thesis presented the observation of measurement-induced back-action imposed on the massive 5-mg suspended mirror (pendulum) in classical regime, whose quantum component was estimated to be also larger than thermal fluctuating force at room temperature. The quantum back-action is one of the most significant issues to be investigated regarding the interferometric gravitational-wave (GW) detectors because it will directly limit the sensitivity in next-generation detectors.
