Quantum limited measurements in gravitational wave detectors
Gravitational waves manifest as a time varying straining of space: they arise from the accelerating motions of large bodies of mass and propagate across the universe at the speed of light as ripples in the fabric of space-time, a fleetingly weak effect so far eluding direct detection. The detection of gravitation waves is expected to yield a rich vein to observational astronomy, complementing existing electromagnetic surveys and revealing a hitherto unexplored...[Show more]
