When a neutron star is compressed to huge densities, it may be converted to a strange star. In property of the event/year rate of a neutron star - strange star binary system, we show that the operational phase of advanced gravitational wave detectors may bring up some evidences that such strange stars do exist. Moreover we argue that such a system could be a plausible progenitor to GRB 051103 and GRB 070201, whose non-detection by LIGO last run awaits convincing explanation. 
COALESCENCE OF STRANGE-QUARK PLANETS WITH STRANGE STARS: A NEW KIND OF SOURCE FOR GRAVITATIONAL WAVE BURSTS
Strange-quark matter (SQM) may be the true ground state of hadronic matter, indicating that the observed pulsars may actually be strange stars (SSs), but not neutron stars. According to the SQM
GW emission from merging strange quark star-strange quark planet systems
Strange quark matter (SQM) may be the true ground state of hadronic matter. The observed pulsars may actually be strange quark stars, rather than neutron stars. With such an SQM hypothesis,
Oscillation modes of strange quark stars with a strangelet crust
We study the non-radial oscillation modes of strange quark stars with a homogeneous core and a crust made of strangelets. Using a 2-component equation-of-state model (core+crust) for strange quark
Searching for Strange Quark Matter Objects in Exoplanets
The true ground state of hadronic matter may be strange quark matter (SQM). Consequently, observed pulsars may actually be strange quark stars, but not neutron stars. However, proving or disproving
Close-in Exoplanets as Candidates for Strange Quark Matter Objects
Since the true ground state of hadrons may be strange quark matter (SQM), pulsars may actually be strange stars rather than neutron stars. According to this SQM hypothesis, strange planets can also
Mimetic Compact Stars
Modified gravity models have been constantly proposed with the purpose of evading some standard gravity shortcomings. Recently proposed by A.H. Chamseddine and V. Mukhanov, the Mimetic Gravity arises
INTEGRAL UPPER LIMITS ON GAMMA-RAY EMISSION ASSOCIATED WITH THE GRAVITATIONAL WAVE EVENT GW150914
Using observations of the INTErnational Gamma-Ray Astrophysics Laboratory (INTEGRAL), we place upper limits on the gamma-ray and hard X-ray prompt emission associated with the gravitational wave
Strange stars in energy–momentum-conserved f(R,T) gravity
For the accurate understanding of compact objects such as neutron stars and strange stars, the Tolmann-Openheimer-Volkof (TOV) equation has proved to be of great use. Hence, in this work, we obtain
Stellar equilibrium configurations of compact stars in f(R,T) theory of gravity
In this article we study the hydrostatic equilibrium configuration of neutron stars and strange stars, whose fluid pressure is computed from the equations of state p=ωρ5/3 and p=0.28(ρ−4ℬ),
Compact Astrophysical Objects in $f(R,T)$ gravity
In this article we study the hydrostatic equilibrium configuration of neutron stars (NSs) and strange stars (SSs), whose fluid pressure is computed from the equations of state $p=\omega\rho^{5/3}$

Mass ejection by strange star mergers and observational implications.
TLDR
The Galactic production rate of strangelets is determined by performing simulations of strange star mergers and combining the results with recent estimates of stellar binary populations to find that the flux depends sensitively on the bag constant of the MIT bag model of QCD and disappears for high values of the bag Constant and thus more compact strange stars.
Conversion of Neutron Stars to Strange Stars as the Central Engine of Gamma-Ray Bursts
TLDR
The total amount of energy liberated in the conversion is in the range of &parl0;1-4&parr0;x1053 ergs (1 order of magnitude larger than previous estimates) and is in agreement with the energy required to power gamma-ray burst sources at cosmological distances.
Measuring neutron-star radii with gravitational-wave detectors.
TLDR
This work presents a simple method for determining the compactness ratio M/R of NS based on the observed deviation of the GW energy spectrum from point-mass behavior at the end of inspiral.
