interferometric gravitational wave detectors must be isolated from seismic noise. The VIRGO vibration isolator, called superattenuator, is fully effective at frequencies above 4 Hz. Nevertheless, the residual motion of the mirror at the mechanical resonant frequencies of the system are too large for the interferometer locking system and must be damped. A(More)
The knowledge of the noise Power Spectral Density of interferometric detector of gravitational waves is fundamental for detection algorithms and for the analysis of the data. In this paper we address both to the problem of identifying the noise Power Spectral Density of interferometric detectors by parametric techniques and to the problem of the whitening(More)
We report J, H, and K photometry of 86 stars in 40 fields in the northern hemisphere. The fields are smaller than or comparable to a 4×4 arcmin field-of-view, and are roughly uniformly distributed over the sky, making them suitable for a homogeneous broadband calibration network for near-infrared panoramic detectors. K magnitudes range from 8.5 to 14, and J(More)
In this work we estimate the performance of a method for the detection of burst events in the data produced by interferometric gravitational wave detectors. We compute the receiver operating characteristics in the specific case of a simulated noise having the spectral density expected for Virgo, using test signals taken from a library of possible waveforms(More)
