# Impact of a midband gravitational wave experiment on detectability of cosmological stochastic gravitational wave backgrounds

@article{Barish2020ImpactOA, title={Impact of a midband gravitational wave experiment on detectability of cosmological stochastic gravitational wave backgrounds}, author={B. Barish and S. Bird and Yanou Cui}, journal={arXiv: General Relativity and Quantum Cosmology}, year={2020} }

We make forecasts for the impact a future "midband" space-based gravitational wave experiment, most sensitive to $10^{-2}- 10 $ Hz, could have on potential detections of cosmological stochastic gravitational wave backgrounds (SGWBs). Specific proposed midband experiments considered are TianGo, B-DECIGO and AEDGE. We propose a combined power-law integrated sensitivity (CPLS) curve combining GW experiments over different frequency bands, which shows the midband improves sensitivity to SGWBs by up… Expand
