Optical ultra-stable optical clock cavities as resonant mass gravitational wave detectors in search for new physics

  title={Optical ultra-stable optical clock cavities as resonant mass gravitational wave detectors in search for new physics},
  author={M. Naro.znik and Marcin Bober and M. Zawada},
We propose to use table-top-size ultra-stable optical cavities from the state-of-the-art optical atomic clocks as bar gravitational wave detectors for the frequencies higher than 2 kHz. We show that 2-20 kHz range of gravitational waves’ spectrum can be accessed with instruments below 2 me-ters in size. The proposed cavities’ materials and properties are being within the present-day technology grasp. The ultra-stable optical cavities allow detecting not only predicted gravitational wave signals…

Neutron Star Extreme Matter Observatory: A kilohertz-band gravitational-wave detector in the global network

Abstract Gravitational waves from coalescing neutron stars encode information about nuclear matter at extreme densities, inaccessible by laboratory experiments. The late inspiral is influenced by the

Gravitational wave detection with optical lattice atomic clocks

We propose a space-based gravitational wave (GW) detector consisting of two spatially separated, drag-free satellites sharing ultrastable optical laser light over a single baseline. Each satellite

Searching for ultralight bosons within spin measurements of a population of binary black hole mergers

Ultralight bosons can form clouds around rotating black holes if their Compton wavelength is comparable to the black hole size. The boson cloud spins down the black hole through a process called

Gravitational waves from binary supermassive black holes missing in pulsar observations

It is concluded that binary evolution is either stalled or dramatically accelerated by galactic-center environments and that higher-cadence and shorter-wavelength observations would be more sensitive to gravitational waves.

Directed searches for gravitational waves from ultralight bosons

Gravitational-wave detectors can be used to search for yet-undiscovered ultralight bosons, including those conjectured to solve problems in particle physics, high-energy theory, and cosmology. In

Discovering the QCD Axion with Black Holes and Gravitational Waves

Advanced LIGO may be the first experiment to detect gravitational waves. Through superradiance of stellar black holes, it may also be the first experiment to discover the QCD axion with decay

Detecting high-frequency gravitational waves with optically levitated sensors.

A tunable resonant sensor to detect gravitational waves in the frequency range of 50-300 kHz using optically trapped and cooled dielectric microspheres or microdisks is proposed, which can exceed the sensitivity of laser-based gravitational wave observatories in this frequency range.

Stochastic and Resolvable Gravitational Waves from Ultralight Bosons.

Numerical solutions of the perturbed field equations and astrophysical models of massive and stellar-mass black hole populations are used to compute, for the first time, the stochastic gravitational-wave background from these sources.

Gravitational-wave limit on the Chandrasekhar mass of dark matter

We explore a new paradigm to study dissipative dark matter models using gravitational-wave observations. We present a method with the potential to either definitively determine the particle nature of


We present general relativistic numerical simulations of collapsing stellar cores. Our initial model consists of a low metallicity rapidly-rotating progenitor which is evolved in axisymmetry with the
