TorPeDO: A low frequency gravitational force sensor

McManus, David; Yap, Min Jet; Ward, Robert; Shaddock, Daniel; McClelland, David; Slagmolen, Bram


Second generation gravitational wave detectors are likely to be limited by Newtonian Noise at low frequencies. A dual torsion pendulum sensor aimed at exploring low-frequency gravitational-force noise is being studied at the ANU. This sensor is designed to measure local gravitational forces to high precision and will be limited by Newtonian noise. We report on a controls prototype which has been constructed and suspended, along with initial characterisation and testing...[Show more]
