Recently, the LIGO Scientific Collaboration and Virgo Collaboration published the second observation on gravitational wave GW151226 [Phys. Rev. Lett. 116, 241103 (2016)] from the binary black hole coalescence with initial masses about 14 M$_\odot$ and 8 M$_\odot$. They claimed that the peak gravitational strain was reached at about 450 Hz, the inverse of which has been longer than the average time a photon staying in the Fabry-Perot cavities in two arms. In this case, the phase-difference of a…

Looking for ancillary signals around GW150914

We replicated the procedure in Liu and Jackson [1], who had found evidence for a low amplitude signal in the vicinity of GW150914. This was based upon the large correlation between the time integral

Motion of photons in a background of gravitational wave

The photon motion in a Michelson interferometer is re-analyzed in both geometrical optics and wave optics. The classical paths of the photons in the background of gravitational wave are derived from
