4 1 st GENERATION DETECTORS The interferometers of the 1t generation (LIGO, Virgo, GEO600) have run in the 1 st decade of 2000 s The sensitivity finally achieved was enough to detect a coalescing BNS in ~100 galaxies but such events happen ~1/10000 yr per galaxy No detection done but a rich legacy has been left. Scineghe, Oct 19, 2016 G Losurdo - INFN PI - AdV Project Leader 4

5 NOISE AND SENSITIVITY The noise has been mostly understood The 1 st generation design sensitivities have been approached closely (and somewhere exceeded upon detector upgrades) Excellent duty cycle (~80%): reliable instruments! Scineghe, Oct 19, 2016 G Losurdo - INFN PI - AdV Project Leader 5
