Enhanced sensitivity of the LIGO gravitational wave detector by using squeezed states of light
Nearly a century after Einstein first predicted the existence of gravitational waves, a global network of Earth-based gravitational wave observatories1, 2, 3, 4 is seeking to directly detect thisExpand

Search for gravitational waves from low mass compact binary coalescence in 186 days of LIGO's fifth science run
We report on a search for gravitational waves from coalescing compact binaries, of total mass between 2 and 35M⊙, using LIGO observations between November 14, 2006 and May 18, 2007. NoExpand

A gravitational wave observatory operating beyond the quantum shot-noise limit
Around the globe several observatories are seeking the first direct detection of gravitational waves (GWs). These waves are predicted by Einstein’s general theory of relativity1 and are generated,Expand

Characterization of transient noise in Advanced LIGO relevant to gravitational wave signal GW150914.
On September 14, 2015, a gravitational wave signal from a coalescing black hole binary system was observed by the Advanced LIGO detectors. This paper describes the transient noise backgrounds used toExpand

Plasma-based accelerator diagnostics based upon longitudinal interferometry with ultrashort optical pulses
All-optical ultrafast time-resolved plasma diagnostics of plasma-based accelerators (PBA's) are described, with emphasis on the laser wakefield accelerator (LWFA). Specifically, the diagnosticExpand

Search for gravitational waves associated with the August 2006 timing glitch of the Vela pulsar
The physical mechanisms responsible for pulsar timing glitches are thought to excite quasinormal mode oscillations in their parent neutron star that couple to gravitational-wave emission. In AugustExpand
