Calibration of the Advanced LIGO detectors is the quantification of the detectors’ response to gravitational waves. Gravitational waves incident on the detectors cause phase shifts in the interferometer laser light which are read out as intensity fluctuations at the detector output. Understanding this detector response to gravitational waves is crucial to producing accurate and precise gravitational wave strain data. Estimates of binary black hole and neutron star parameters and tests of… 
Review of the Advanced LIGO Gravitational Wave Observatories Leading to Observing Run Four
Gravitational waves from binary black hole and neutron star mergers are being regularly detected. As of 2021, 90 confident gravitational wave detections have been made by the LIGO and Virgo
Characterization of systematic error in Advanced LIGO calibration
The raw outputs of the detectors within the Advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory need to be calibrated in order to produce the estimate of the dimensionless strain used for
A guide to LIGO–Virgo detector noise and extraction of transient gravitational-wave signals
The LIGO Scientific Collaboration and the Virgo Collaboration have cataloged eleven confidently detected gravitational-wave events during the first two observing runs of the advanced detector era.
Sensitivity and performance of the Advanced LIGO detectors in the third observing run
On April 1st, 2019, the Advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (aLIGO), joined by the Advanced Virgo detector, began the third observing run, a year-long dedicated search for
Gravitational-wave searches in the era of Advanced LIGO and Virgo
The field of gravitational-wave astronomy has been opened up by gravitational-wave observations made with interferometric detectors. This review surveys the current state-of-the-art in
Physical approach to the marginalization of LIGO calibration uncertainties
The data from ground based gravitational-wave detectors such as Advanced LIGO and Virgo must be calibrated to convert the digital output of photodetectors into a relative displacement of the test
Improving the absolute accuracy of the gravitational wave detectors by combining the photon pressure and gravity field calibrators
The absolute accuracy of the estimated parameters of gravitational wave sources will be fundamentally limited by the calibration uncertainties of the detectors in upcoming observation runs with the
Calibration uncertainty’s impact on gravitational-wave observations
Our ability to characterize astrophysical Gravitational Waves depends on our understanding of the detectors used to observe them. Specifically, our ability to calibrate current kilometer-scale
All-sky search for continuous gravitational waves from isolated neutron stars using Advanced LIGO O2 data
We present results of an all-sky search for continuous gravitational waves (CWs), which can be produced by fast spinning neutron stars with an asymmetry around their rotation axis, using data from
Calibrating gravitational-wave detectors with GW170817
The waveform of a compact binary coalescence is predicted by general relativity. It is therefore possible to directly constrain the response of a gravitational-wave (GW) detector by analyzing a


Long-Baseline Laser Interferometry for the Detection of Binary Black-Hole Mergers
Late in 2015, gravitational physics reached a watershed moment with the first direct detections of gravitational waves. Two events, each from the coalescence of a binary black hole system, were
Length Sensing and Control of a Prototype Advanced Interferometric Gravitational Wave Detector
There is a worldwide effort to directly detect gravitational radiation. The Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO) operates three kilometer-scale interferometric gravitational
Gaussian Processes for Machine Learning
The treatment is comprehensive and self-contained, targeted at researchers and students in machine learning and applied statistics, and deals with the supervised learning problem for both regression and classification.
