Abstract Schenberg is a detector of gravitational waves resonant mass type, with a central frequency of operation of 3200 Hz. Transducers located on the surface of the resonating sphere, according to a distribution half-dodecahedron, are used to monitor a strain amplitude. To improve the performance of the detector it is essential to decrease the temperature, then it will be cooled down, this temperature could reach as low as 50 mK. This refrigerator produces vibration noise that could compromise the performance of Schenberg detector. In this work we the study such vibration noise and how it could be minimized proposing a new connection from the dilution refrigerator to the sphere suspension. The vibration attenuation is studied by finite element modeling (FEM) and an attenuation higher than 1024 is found, higher enough to note compromise the performance of Schenberg detector.
