We present upper limits on the gravitational wave emission from 78 radio pulsars based on data from the third and fourth science runs of the LIGO and GEO 600 gravitational wave detectors. The data from both runs have been combined coherently to maximize sensitivity. For the first time, pulsars within binary (or multiple) systems have been included in the search by taking into account the signal modulation due to their orbits. Our upper limits are therefore the first measured for 56 of these… 
Searches for gravitational waves from known pulsars with science run 5 LIGO data
We present a search for gravitational waves from 116 known millisecond and young pulsars using data from the fifth science run of the LIGO detectors. For this search ephemerides overlapping the run
First search for gravitational waves from known pulsars with advanced LIGO
We present the result of searches for gravitational waves from 200 pulsars using data from the first observing run of the Advanced LIGO detectors. We find no significant evidence for a
Beating the spin-down limit on gravitational wave emission from the Vela pulsar
We present direct upper limits on gravitational wave emission from the Crab pulsar using data from the first 9 months of the fifth science run of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave
First Search for Gravitational Waves from the Youngest Known Neutron Star
We present a search for periodic gravitational waves from the neutron star in the supernova remnant Cassiopeia A. The search coherently analyzes data in a 12 day interval taken from the fifth science
Searches for continuous gravitational waves from nine young supernova remnants
We describe directed searches for continuous gravitational waves in data from the sixth LIGO science data run. The targets were nine young supernova remnants not associated with pulsars; eight of the
Upper and lower limits on the Crab pulsar's astrophysical parameters set from gravitational wave observations by LIGO: braking index and energy considerations
The Laser Interferometer Gravitational Observatory (LIGO) has recently reached the end of its fifth science run (S5), having collected more than a year worth of data. Analysis of the data is still
Prospects of observing continuous gravitational waves from known pulsars
Several searches for gravitational waves from a selection of known pulsars have been performed with data from the science runs of the LIGO gravitational wave detectors. So far these have lead to no
Narrow-band search for gravitational waves from known pulsars using the second LIGO observing run
Isolated spinning neutron stars, asymmetric with respect to their rotation axis, are expected to be sources of continuous gravitational waves. The most sensitive searches for these sources are based
Search for continuous gravitational waves from neutron stars in globular cluster NGC 6544
We describe a directed search for continuous gravitational waves in data from the sixth LIGO science run. The target was the nearby globular cluster NGC 6544 at a distance of 2.7 kpc. The search
Observational results from the LIGO and Virgo detectors
The first generation of ground-based interferometric gravitational wave detectors, LIGO, GEO and Virgo, have operated and taken data at their design sensitivities over the last few years. The data

Limits on gravitational-wave emission from selected pulsars using LIGO data.
TLDR
The unprecedented sensitivity of the detectors allows us to set strain upper limits as low as a few times 10(-24), which translate into limits on the equatorial ellipticities of the pulsars, which are smaller than 10(-5) for the four closest pulsars.
Searching for gravitational waves from known pulsars
We present upper limits on the amplitude of gravitational waves from 28 isolated pulsars using data from the second science run of LIGO. The results are also expressed as a constraint on the pulsars'

Data collected by the GEO 600 and LIGO interferometric gravitational wave detectors during their first observational science run were searched for continuous gravitational waves from the pulsar

We perform a wide parameter-space search for continuous gravitational waves over the whole sky and over a large range of values of the frequency and the first spin-down parameter. Our search method
Direct observational upper limit to gravitational radiation from millisecond pulsar PSR1937 + 214
The newly discovered millisecond pulsar PSR1937 + 214 has such a high rotational rate, 642 Hz, that any significant quadrupole moment not aligned with the spin axis could lead to a large flux of
Revised estimate of gravitational radiation from Crab and Vela pulsars
PROGRESS in the development of ultra-high-Q dielectric crystals (Bagdasarov et al. unpublished data) has caused experimenters in the field of general relativity to look for rotation-induced
Searching for gravitational waves from the Crab pulsar—the problem of timing noise
Of the current known pulsars, the Crab pulsar (B0531+21) is one of the most promising sources of gravitational waves. The relatively large timing noise of the Crab causes its phase evolution to
Tests of General Relativity from Timing the Double Pulsar
TLDR
By measuring relativistic corrections to the Keplerian description of the orbital motion, it is found that the “post-Keplerian” parameter s agrees with the value predicted by general relativity within an uncertainty of 0.05%, the most precise test yet obtained.
Neutron Star Mass Measurements. I. Radio Pulsars
There are now about 50 known radio pulsars in binary systems, including at least five in double neutron star binaries. In some cases, the stellar masses can be directly determined from measurements
