Quantum metrology for gravitational wave astronomy

Schnabel, Roman; Mavalvala, Nergis; McClelland, David; Lam, Ping Koy

Description

Einstein's general theory of relativity predicts that accelerating mass distributions produce gravitational radiation, analogous to electromagnetic radiation from accelerating charges. These gravitational waves (GWs) have not been directly detected to date, but are expected to open a new window to the Universe once the detectors, kilometre-scale laser interferometers measuring the distance between quasi-free-falling mirrors, have achieved adequate sensitivity. Recent advances in quantum...[Show more]
