Can Light be "Squeezed" to Improve Sensitivity of Gravitational Wave Detectors? - Universe Today
The search is on to detect the first evidence of gravitational waves travelling around the cosmos. How can we do this? The Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) uses a system of laser beams fired over a distance of 4 km (2.5 miles) and reflected back and forth by a system of mirrors. Should a gravitational … Continue reading "Can Light be “Squeezed” to Improve Sensitivity of Gravitational Wave Detectors?"
