The LIGO Open Science Center (LOSC) provides access to
LIGO and Virgo data, as well as documentation, tutorials, and online
tools for finding and viewing data.
What are gravitational-wave interferometers?
Where's the data?
The Data Page allows you to download
LIGO and Virgo data.
- The main data are time series sampled at 16384 Hz or 4096 Hz.
- Data are calibrated so that gravitational
wave signals have units of dimensionless strain (ΔL / L).
How do I work with LIGO and Virgo data?
The Tutorials Page shows examples of how
to work with gravitational-wave data. If you are a student, this is a great place to start.
The Software Page provides links to analysis software libraries
used by the LIGO Scientific Collaboration and Virgo Collaboration.
When were the detectors running?
