The advanced Virgo (AdV) sensitivity might be influenced by the effects of environmental noise, in particular magnetic noise (MN). In order to show the impact on the gravitational-wave strain signal h(t) and on the AdV sensitivity, we must understand the coupling between the environmental magnetic activity and the strain. The relationship between the environmental noise—measured by a physical environment monitor (PEM)—and h(t) is investigated using injection studies, where an intentional… 

The Hunt for Environmental Noise in Virgo during the Third Observing Run

The first twenty years of operation of gravitational-wave interferometers have shown that these detectors are affected by physical disturbances from the surrounding environment. These are seismic,

Magnetic and Newtonian noises in Advanced Virgo: evaluation and mitigation strategies

In the present study, I table the first detailed estimation of the magnetic noise contribution to the Advanced Virgo sensitivity to gravitational waves. I tackle the topic by performing experimental

Impact of Schumann resonances on the Einstein Telescope and projections for the magnetic coupling function

Correlated magnetic noise in the form of Schumann resonances could introduce limitations to the gravitational-wave background searches of future Earth-based gravitational-wave detectors. We consider

Seismic and Newtonian Noise in the GW Detectors

Gravitational wave detectors aim to measure relative length variations of the order of ΔL/L≃10−21, or less. Thus, any mechanism that is able to reproduce such a tiny variation can, in principle,

Machine learning for gravitational-wave detection: surrogate Wiener filtering for the prediction and optimized cancellation of Newtonian noise at Virgo

A machine-learning approach is presented to calculate a surrogate model of a Wiener filter used to calculate optimal configurations of seismometer arrays for a varying number of sensors, indicating that efficient noise cancellation can be achieved even for complex seismic fields with relatively few seismometers provided that they are deployed in optimal configurations.

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.

The Current Status and Future Prospects of KAGRA, the Large-Scale Cryogenic Gravitational Wave Telescope Built in the Kamioka Underground

KAGRA is a gravitational-wave (GW) detector constructed in Japan with two unique key features: It was constructed underground, and the test-mass mirrors are cooled to cryogenic temperatures. These

Stochastic gravitational wave background: Methods and implications



Magnetic coupling to the advanced Virgo payloads and its impact on the low frequency sensitivity.

At the current stage of development, AdV seems to be unaffected by magnetic noise, but the authors foresee a non-negligible coupling once AdV reaches the design sensitivity, and employ and validate a finite element analysis approach.
