Testing small scale gravitational wave detectors with dynamical mass distributions.
The recent discovery of gravitational waves by LIGO created renewed interest in the investigation of alternative gravitational detector designs, such as small scale resonant detectors. In this article, it is shown how proposed small scale detectors can be tested by generating dynamical gravitational near fields with appropriate distributions of moving masses. This opens up the possibility to evaluate detector proposals very early in the development phase and may help to progress quickly in their development.

Keeping up-to-date with research can feel impossible, with papers being published faster than you'll ever be able to read them. That's where Researcher comes in: we're simplifying discovery and making important discussions happen. With over 19,000 sources, including peer-reviewed journals, preprints, blogs, universities, podcasts and Live events across 10 research areas, you'll never miss what's important to you. It's like social media, but better. Oh, and we should mention - it's free.
Researcher displays publicly available abstracts and doesn’t host any full article content. If the content is open access, we will direct clicks from the abstracts to the publisher website and display the PDF copy on our platform.
