Quantum limited measurements in gravitational wave detectors

Wade, Andrew

Description

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.
