An upper limit on the stochastic gravitational-wave background of cosmological origin
A stochastic background of gravitational waves is expected to arise from a superposition of a large number of unresolved gravitational-wave sources of astrophysical and cosmological origin. It shouldExpand

Observing gravitational-wave transient GW150914 with minimal assumptions
The gravitational-wave signal GW150914 was first identified on Sept 14 2015 by searches for short-duration gravitational-wave transients. These searches identify time-correlated transients inExpand

Searches for periodic gravitational waves from unknown isolated sources and Scorpius X-1: Results from the second LIGO science run
We carry out two searches for periodic gravitational waves using the most sensitive few hours of data from the second LIGO science run. Both searches exploit fully coherent matched filtering andExpand

All-sky LIGO search for periodic gravitational waves in the early fifth-science-run data.
We report on an all-sky search with the LIGO detectors for periodic gravitational waves in the frequency range 50-1100 Hz and with the frequency's time derivative in the range -5 x 10{-9}-0 Hz s{-1}.Expand

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

Observation of a kilogram-scale oscillator near its quantum ground state
We introduce a novel cooling technique capable of approaching the quantum ground state of a kilogram-scale system—an interferometric gravitational wave detector. The detectors of the LaserExpand

All-sky search for periodic gravitational waves in LIGO S4 data
We report on an all-sky search with the LIGO detectors for periodic gravitational waves in the frequency range 50–1000 Hz and with the frequency’s time derivative in the range −1×10^(−8)  Hz s^(−1)Expand

Search for gravitational waves associated with 39 gamma-ray bursts using data from the second, third, and fourth LIGO runs
We present the results of a search for short-duration gravitational-wave bursts associated with 39 gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) detected by gamma-ray satellite experiments during LIGO’s S2, S3, and S4Expand

Search for gravitational-wave bursts in LIGO's third science run
We report on a search for gravitational-wave bursts in data from the three LIGO interferometric detectors during their third science run. The search targets sub-second bursts in the frequency rangeExpand

Einstein@Home search for periodic gravitational waves in early S5 LIGO data
This paper reports on an all-sky search for periodic gravitational waves from sources such as deformed isolated rapidly spinning neutron stars. The analysis uses 840 hours of data from 66 days ofExpand
