Special OSSC Webinar Presentation, April 27, 2022, 7:00pm

“The Optical Technologies that Allowed the Detection of Gravitational Waves”

By Dr. Gabriele Vajente

Senior Research Scientist, Caltech LIGO Team

Abstract: The detection of Gravitational Wave signals from binary black holes and binary neutron stars coalescences opened a new era in modern astronomy. Those discoveries were possible using high sensitivity km-scale laser interferometers. In this talk we will describe the most important optical techniques that allowed the Advanced LIGO and Virgo detectors to reach their unprecedented sensitivity and to detect gravitational waves.
