Abstract

After the Gravitational Wave detections from both Binary Black Hole (BBH) mergers and from a Binary Neutron Star (BNS) merger, the next and most pressing Gravitational Wave signal will come from Core-Collapse Supernovae (CCSNe). In order to detect such signals, development on the laser interferometers is necessary. The aim of this research is to develop and optimize techniques specific for frequencies in the hundreds of hertz where Gravitational Waves from CCSNe contain a majority of their energy.
