Results from all-sky search in LIGO O2 data published

The results of our all-sky search for continuous gravitational waves in public data from LIGO's second observing run (O2) have now been published in The Astrophysical Journal. The publication describes the search with the best sensitivity ever achieved by such an all-sky survey up to 500 Hz.

Many heart-felt thanks to all of you who made this work possible by donating cycles from your computers!

Read the open access publication “Einstein@Home All-sky Search for Continuous Gravitational Waves in LIGO O2 Public Data” and learn more about our research in our YouTube video “Searching for Continuous Gravitational Waves”.
