Pi of the Sky in LSC-Virgo's em follow-up in O1 science run
MetadataShow full item record
© 2017 SPIE. Presented in this contribution are results gathered by Pi of the Sky during LSC-Virgo O1 science run. Pi of the Sky took part in LSC-Virgo's Electromagnetic (EM) Follow-up project during first science run of Advanced LIGO detectors between September 2015 and January 2016. LSC-Virgo's EM Follow-up is aimed for searching electromagnetic counterparts to gravitational wave transient candidates. Observing an event both in EM and gravitational wave band might be a important step forward to multi-messenger astronomy. The aim of this paper is to show algorithms used by Pi of the Sky for analysing data taken during the first science run and to present the corresponding results. Concepts of algorithms for the next science run will also be discussed.

The LIGO Scientific Collaboration; The Virgo Collaboration; Sokolowski, Marcin (2014)During the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory and Virgo joint science runs in 2009-2010, gravitational wave (GW) data from three interferometer detectors were analyzed within minutes to select GW candidate ...
Capturing the electromagnetic counterparts of binary neutron star mergers through low-latency gravitational wave triggersChu, Q.; Howell, E.; Rowlinson, A.; Gao, H.; Zhang, B.; Tingay, Steven; Boër, M.; Wen, L. (2016)© 2016 The Authors. We investigate the prospects for joint low-latency gravitational wave (GW) detection and prompt electromagnetic (EM) follow-up observations of coalescing binary neutron stars (BNSs). For BNS mergers ...
