Description

The Virgo experiment, located near Pisa, Italy, is a large laser Michelson interferometer aiming at the first direct detection of gravitational waves. The interferometer monitors the relative distance of its mirrors placed at the ends of two 3 km-long perpendicular arms. The goal is to measure spectral differential variations of the arm lengths of 10 <-18< m/Hz< in the frequency range from 10 Hz to 10 kHz. Avoiding spurious motions of the optical components is therefore essential to detect...[Show more]
