Among third-generation ground-based gravitational-wave detectors proposed for the next decade, Einstein Telescope provides a unique kind of null stream – the signal-free linear combination of data – that enables otherwise inaccessible tests of the noise models. We project and showcase challenges in modeling the noise in the 2030s and how it will affect the performance of third-generation detectors. We find that the null stream of Einstein Telescope is capable of eliminating transient detector…
