[gr-qc/0207052] On the frequency shift of gravitational waves

Authors: Claudio M. G. de Sousa

Abstract: Considering plane gravitational waves propagating through flat spacetime, it is shown that curvatures experienced both in the starting point and during their arrival at the earth can cause a considerable shift in the frequencies as measured by earth and space-based detectors. Particularly for the case of resonant bar detectors this shift can cause noise-filters to smother the signal.
