Optomechanical interaction can be a platform for converting quantum optical sates at different frequencies. In this work, we propose to combine the idea of optomechanical frequency conversion and the dual-use of laser interferometer, for the purpose of improving the broadband sensitivity of laser interferometer gravitational wave detectors by filtering the light field. We found that compare to the previous schemes of implementing the optomechanical devices in gravitational wave detectors, this
