LIGO-India: A Decadal Assessment on Its Scope, Relevance, Progress, and Future

  title={LIGO-India: A Decadal Assessment on Its Scope, Relevance, Progress, and Future},
  author={C. S. Unnikrishnan},
The LIGO-India project to build and operate an advanced LIGO (aLIGO) gravitational wave (GW) detector in India in collaboration with LIGO-USA was considered and initiated as an Indian national megascience project in 2011. The project relied on the advantage of a head start and cost saving due to the ready availability of the full aLIGO interferometer components from LIGO-USA, approved by the National Science Foundation. Procedural formalities and site selection efforts progressed since then and…

IndIGO and LIGO-India: Scope and Plans for Gravitational Wave Research and Precision Metrology in India

Initiatives by the IndIGO (Indian Initiative in Gravitational Wave Observations) Consortium during the past three years have materialized into concrete plans and project opportunities for

First cryogenic test operation of underground km-scale gravitational-wave observatory KAGRA

KAGRA is a second-generation interferometric gravitational-wave detector with 3 km arms constructed at Kamioka, Gifu, Japan. It is now in its final installation phase, which we call bKAGRA (baseline

Large-scale cryogenic gravitational-wave telescope in Japan: KAGRA

KAGRA, the large-scale cryogenic gravitational-wave telescope (formerly known as LCGT), is a laser interferometric detector under construction at the Kamioka mine in Japan. We report on the current

Prospects for observing and localizing gravitational-wave transients with Advanced LIGO, Advanced Virgo and KAGRA

The sensitivity of the LIGO network to transient gravitational-wave signals is estimated, and the capability of the network to determine the sky location of the source is studied, to facilitate planning for multi-messenger astronomy with gravitational waves.

Gravitational wave astronomy with LIGO and similar detectors in the next decade

We describe the plans for gravitational-wave observations and astrophysics that will be carried out by the LIGO Scientific Collaboration (LSC) in the next decade using data from the LIGO

Double Bonanza at the LIGO Gravitational Wave Detectors

Soon after the two advanced LIGO detectors were ready in September 2015 for a calibrated observation run, a giant gravitational wave burst hit the detectors and were duly recorded as nearly identical

LIGO-India - A Unique Adventure in Indian Science

This paper presents a meta-analyses of the proton-proton collisions in the Large Hadron Collider and shows clear trends in the number of collisions and the intensity of collisions that occur at very low temperatures.

Observation of Gravitational Waves from a Binary Black Hole Merger

On September 14, 2015 at 09:50:45 UTC the two detectors of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory simultaneously observed a transient gravitational-wave signal. The signal sweeps
