Paper Abstract

The 2015 seminal discovery of gravitational waves (GW) from the collision of the binary black holes has boosted interest to development of a more sensitive next generation gravitational-wave interferometers. As the current Advanced LIGO and Virgo detectors are limited by fundamental quantum fluctuations of light in the most of their detection band, the next generation of interferometers must use advanced quantum noise-mitigation methods and quantum non-demolition (QND) techniques to achieve the planned design sensitivity of 10 times better than the current detectors have. In this paper, we attempt to give an overview of some advanced quantum metrology techniques being considered as potential sensitivity boosters for the next generation GW detectors.
