Paper Abstract

The GEO600 laser interferometric gravitational wave detector is approaching the end of its commissioning phase which started in 1995. During a test run in January 2002 the detector was operated for 15 days in a power-recycled michelson configuration. The detector and environmental data which were acquired during this test run were used to test the data analysis code. This paper describes the subsystems of GEO600, the status of the detector by August 2002 and the plans towards the first science run.
