Gravito-optics and intensity correlations for binary inspiral signal detections
Physics and Astronomy
In this paper, we examine the correlation functions associated with intensity interferometry and gravito-optics of gravitational wave (GW) signals from compact binary coalescences (CBC). Previous theoretical studies of the gravito-optics of GWs have concentrated on the characterization of both the classical and the nonclassical properties of signals from cosmological sources in the early Universe. These previous works assume a periodic signal similar to the signals studied widely in optics and quantum optics and do not apply to transient signals. We develop the gravito-optics of intensity correlations for descriptions of the detection of transient signals from CBC and apply these methods to calculate the two-point intensity correlations for the GW discovery. We also discuss the necessary theoretical work required for the description of the quantum gravito-optics of intensity correlations in the detection of signals from binary inspirals.
