[1103.2728] The Advanced LIGO Gravitational Wave Detector

Authors: S. J. Waldman (the LIGO Scientific Collaboration)

Date: 14 Mar 2011

Abstract: The Advanced LIGO gravitational wave detectors will be installed starting in 2011, with completion scheduled for 2015. The new detectors will improve the strain sensitivity of current instruments by a factor of ten, with a thousandfold increase in the observable volume of space. Here we describe the design and limiting noise sources of these second generation, long-baseline, laser interferometers.
