Interferometric gravitational wave detectors

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Gravitational wave detection has now entered the era in which signals are being found. It is timely, therefore, to review the current detectors and how they work. This review focuses on the dramatic arc that links the earliest clear understanding of gravitational wave detection with the current generation of detectors. I will also discuss the prospects for expansion of the global network of gravitational wave detectors, with special attention to the role of LIGO-India.
