LSC Observational and Instrument Publications

The direct detection of gravitational waves is an issue that necessitates worldwide cooperation.

The LIGO Scientific Collaboration (LSC) was founded in 1997 as a forum for organizing research, publication and all other scientific activities in graviational wave research. In 2009 the LSC and the Virgo Collaboration agreed to work together. At present the LSC-Virgo Collaboration comprises about 800 scientists from about 80 institutes all over the world.

A list of all LSC observational and instrument publications can be found here.
