Searching for correlations in global environmental noise within the context of gravitational wave detection

Wette, Karl

Description

The high sensitivity required of interferometric gravitational wave detectors is such that environmental noise becomes a very important consideration. Local environmental noise may be partially or wholly eliminated by cross-correlating data from two widely displaced detectors; such a strategy, however, will not be immune to environmental noise that is global in nature. Thus the characterisation of global environmental noise is of vital importance to the detection of gravitational waves. In...[Show more]
