30 Advanced LIGO 8/31/06 WG6 summary, TEV II 31 What can gravitational waves tell us about neutron stars? Ben Owen PSU 8/31/06 WG6 summary, TEV II 32 Periodic signals:

Pulsar emission mechanism Pulse profiles in different EM bands illuminate mechanism Profiles show (phase) timing noise, mostly in young pulsars GW wont show interesting pulse profiles (only lowest harmonic detectable) Will be able to test if GW signal has timing noise or not Tells us how magnetosphere is coupled to dense interior (Does B-field structure go all the way in? Just crust? ) 8/31/06

WG6 summary, TEV II 33 Periodic signals: How solid is a neutron star? 8/31/06 NS definitely have (thin) solid crust (known from pulsar glitches) Normal nuclear crusts can only produce ellipticity < few 10-7 If ? is solid quark matter, whole star could be solid, < few 10-4

If ? is quark-baryon mixture or meson condensate, half of core could be solid, < 10-5 High ellipticity measurement means exotic state of matter Low ellipticity is inconclusive: strain, buried B-field WG6 summary, TEV II 34 Burst signals: Supernova core collapse 8/31/06

Burst from collapse and bounce Poorly modeled: different groups predict different waveforms, agree that there is no supernova explosion. Long GRBs: knowing time & location helps GW searches GRB/GW/neutrino relative delays could shed light on explosion mechanism If GW & signals are both short, result is a black hole WG6 summary, TEV II 35 Path to sub-quantum-noise limited gravitational wave interferometers Nergis Mavalvala

Conclusions Resonant bar detectors are operating in a stable mode but at low sensitivity compared with LIGO is currently carrying out a science run at design sensitivity. Searches for all major categories of sources are underway and will at least set upper limits. Detections are possible! Enhancements in ~ 3 years will increase the reach by a factor of 3 An upgrade (Advanced LIGO) is planned early next decade Detections are guaranteed Quantum non-demolition techniques needed to beat quantum limits (squeezed light) 8/31/06 WG6 summary, TEV II 43
