[0912.4925] Detecting coalescences of intermediate-mass black holes in globular clusters with the Einstein Telescope

Authors: Ilya Mandel, Jonathan R. Gair, M. Coleman Miller

Date: 24 Dec 2009

Abstract: We discuss the capability of a third-generation ground-based detector such as the Einstein Telescope to detect mergers of intermediate-mass black holes that may have formed through runaway stellar collisions in globular clusters. We find that detection rates of 2000 events per year are plausible.
