LIGO/GEO600/Virgo

Three gravitational wave projects have detectors online: LIGO, GEO and Virgo. At AEI, we study and develop data analysis methods to extract the gravitational wave signals from the data produced by these gravitational wave detectors. We do this in the context of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration (LSC), which comprises hundreds of scientists whose mission is to exploit the full scietific potential of the LIGO and GEO gravitational wave data now available. A data sharing agreement exists which also allows us to access Virgo data and perform joint searches with Virgo. The data analysis group at AEI Golm is lead by M.A. Papa who is the Data Analysis Coordinator for the LSC. Different analysis techniques are required, based in the signal that one wants to detect.
