Low-frequency gravitational wave telescopes

Latham Boyle

Perimeter Institute

The gravitational waves sought by LIGO represent the high-frequency tip of the expected astrophysical gravitational wave spectrum. Many of the most interesting gravitational wave signals will be at much lower frequencies. I will explain several ideas related to the design and scientific application of lower frequency gravitational wave telescopes.
