Quantum enhancement of a 4km laser interferometer gravitational-wave detector

Chua, Sheon Shang Yaw

Description

The ability to directly detect gravitational waves will open a completely new branch of astronomy to view the Universe, one that is inaccessible to electromagnetic-based astronomy. First generation ground-based interferometric gravitational-wave detectors have achieved strain sensitivities of order one part in ten to the twenty-one, at 100 Hz detection frequency. A new generation of detectors are under construction, designed to improve on the sensitivity of the first-generation detectors by a...[Show more]
