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 of the fifth LIGO science run (S5). The data were searched for quasimonochromatic waves with frequencies f in the range from 50 to 1500 Hz, with a linear frequency drift _ƒ (measured at the solar system barycenter) in the range -ƒ/T < ƒ_ < 0:1ƒ/T, for a minimum spin-down age T of 1000 years for… CONTINUE READING
