Detector characterization at LIGO Livingston

Group members Jess McIver, Evan Goetz, and student Katie Rink visited the LIGO-Livingston detector in Livingston, Louisiana for the LIGO Detector Characterization meeting and noise sprint in January 2020.

Jess led the meeting, which focused on plans for LIGO detector noise studies and supporting validation of  event candidates in the remainder of the current LIGO-Virgo observing run, O3. and Katie and Evan participated in the noise sprint workshop, which matched junior researchers with mentors to tackle a series of LIGO detector characterization projects.

Read more about their findings on the public LIGO-Livingston alog.
