  • The binary neutron star coalescence GW170817 was observed by gravitational wave detectors during the inspiral phase but sensitivity in the 1-5 kHz band was insufficient to observe the expected nuclear matter signature of the merger itself, and the process of black hole formation. This provides strong motivation for improving 1--5 kHz sensitivity which is currently limited by photon shot noise. Resonant enhancement by signal recycling normally improves the signal to noise ratio at the expense of… CONTINUE READING
