- 2 April 2013

We present possible observing scenarios for the Advanced LIGO, Advanced Virgo and KAGRA gravitational-wave detectors over the next decade, with the intention of providing information to the astronomy… Expand

KAGRA: 2.5 Generation Interferometric Gravitational Wave Detector

The recent detections of gravitational waves (GWs) reported by LIGO/Virgo collaborations have made significant impact on physics and astronomy. A global network of GW detectors will play a key role… Expand

Inertial and gravitational effects in the proper reference frame of an accelerated, rotating observer

- W. Ni, M. Zimmermann
- Physics
- 15 March 1978

Most experimental laboratories accelerate and rotate relative to inertial frames. This paper derives approximate expressions for the general-relativistic metric and the general-relativistic equations… Expand

Equivalence Principles and Electromagnetism

- W. Ni
- Physics
- 14 February 1977

The implications of the weak equivalence principles are investigated in detail for electromagnetic systems in a general framework. In particular, I show that the universality of free-fall… Expand

Theoretical frameworks for testing relativistic gravity. IV - A compendium of metric theories of gravity and their post-Newtonian limits.

- W. Ni
- Physics
- 15 September 1972

Metric theories of gravity are compiled and classified according to the types of gravitational fields they contain, and the modes of interaction among those fields. The gravitation theories… Expand

ASTROD and ASTROD I -- Overview and Progress

- W. Ni
- Physics
- 15 December 2007

In this paper, we present an overview of ASTROD (Astrodynamical Space Test of Relativity using Optical Devices) and ASTROD I mission concepts and studies. The missions employ deep-space laser ranging… Expand

Expansions of the affinity, metric and geodesic equations in Fermi normal coordinates about a geodesic

Fermi normal coordinates about a geodesic form a natural coordinate system for the nonrotating geodesic (freely falling) observer. Expansions of the affinity, metric, and geodesic equations in these… Expand

Empirical Foundations of the Relativistic Gravity

- W. Ni
- Physics
- 24 April 2005

In 1859, Le Verrier discovered the mercury perihelion advance anomaly. This anomaly turned out to be the first relativistic-gravity effect observed. During the 141 years to 2000, the precisions of… Expand

ZAIGA: Zhaoshan Long-baseline Atom Interferometer Gravitation Antenna

The Zhaoshan long-baseline Atom Interferometer Gravitation Antenna (ZAIGA) is a new type of underground laser-linked interferometer facility, and is currently under construction. It is in the… Expand

Theoretical frameworks for testing relativistic gravity: A review

Metric theories of gravity are presented, including the definition of metric theory, evidence for its existence, and response of matter to gravity with test body trajectories, gravitational red… Expand
