Searching for gravitational waves from low mass x-ray binaries

C Messenger, Alberto Vecchio

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Accreting neutron stars in binary systems, and Sco X-1 in particular, are considered one of the prime astrophysical targets for Earth-based gravitational wave laser interferometers. Here we discuss a data analysis strategy that we have developed for this class of systems which is now being applied to the science data collected by GEO600 and LIGO.
