Experimental demonstration of a gravitational wave detector configuration below the shot noise limit

McKenzie, K


Unprecedented sensitivity of measurement is required to detect gravitational waves. Although the first generation of interferometric gravitational wave detectors are the most sensitive devices ever built, it is expected they will not be sensitive enough to regularly detect gravitational waves. The precision of the optical measurement used in gravitational wave detectors is ultimately limited by the quantum mechanical fluctuations of the light, called quantumnoise. The first generation of...[Show more]
