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 gravitational-wave research. In 2009 the LSC and the Virgo Collaboration agreed to work together. At present the LIGO Scientific and Virgo Collaborations comprises about 1700 scientists from about 100 institutes all over the world.

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