LIGO: A Review of Mirror Technology

Started June 28, 2021

Abstract or project description

The Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO) made the first direct detection of gravitational waves. This detection was only possible due to the advanced technology developed by the LIGO team. Particularly impressive were the mechanisms used to keep suspended mirrors from being impacted by external noise. Chinmay will write a review paper describing the LIGO experiment and focusing on the advancements that have been made to the mirror system. The paper will pull from multiple reliable sources to give an approachable description of the mirror systems.
