Hints on data analysis with the Explorer and Nautilus resonant detectors

Gravitational wave resonant detectors can look for signals from various sources.

The sensitivity of the detectors to the various signals is determined by the strain sensitivity (or noise spectral amplitude [ 1/sqrt(Hz) ]).

The work of the data analysis group concerns the analysis of the data and the study and design of suitable search strategies, to look for the various signals (that are usually classified as: bursts, continuous waves, stochastic background).

The data of the Nautilus and Explorer detectors are acquired at a sampling rate of 5000 Hz, using the DAGA2 HF acquisition and on-line analysis system
