Observing gravitational-wave transient GW150914 with minimal assumptions

LIGO Scientific Collaboration; VIRGO, Scientific Collaboration (numerous Scientists)


The gravitational-wave signal GW150914 was first identified on September 14, 2015, by searches for short-duration gravitational-wave transients. These searches identify time-correlated transients in multiple detectors with minimal assumptions about the signal morphology, allowing them to be sensitive to gravitational waves emitted by a wide range of sources including binary black hole mergers. Over the observational period from September 12 to October 20, 2015, these transient searches were...[Show more]
