Description

We report results from a search for gravitational waves produced by perturbed intermediate mass black holes (IMBH) in data collected by LIGO and Virgo between 2005 and 2010. The search was sensitive to astrophysical sources that produced damped sinusoid gravitational wave signals, also known as ringdowns, with frequency 50≤f0/Hz≤2000 and decay timescale 0.0001 τ/s 0.1 characteristic of those produced in mergers of IMBH pairs. No significant gravitational wave candidate was detected. We report...[Show more]
