Gravity gradient noise generated by seismic displacements may be the limiting factor for the sensitivity of third-generation gravitational wave detectors at frequencies below 10 Hz. A finite element framework has been developed to calculate the soil response to various excitations. The accompanying gravity gradients as a result of the seismic displacement field can then be evaluated. The results of the gravity gradient noise are in good agreement with previous analytical results. Finally...[Show more]
