Available student project - Frequency distribution over fibre for next generation Gravitational Wave Detectors

Research fields

  • Quantum Science and Technology
  • Engineering in Physics

Project details

After the detection of gravitaitonal waves using the LIGO and Virgo obsevatories, R&D is underway to even further improve their sensitivity and reach into the Universe. The next large observatoy upgrade will install a new detector readout topology, which will require the distribution of a stabel phase reference around the observatories.

Required background

Matlab, optics, fibers

Project suitability

This research project can be tailored to suit students of the following type(s)
  • 3rd year special project
  • Honours project
  • Phd or Masters
