. Am guessing that raw LIGO data is available in some format – ah-ha – try here. Does that help?


How about GEO600?

On the 15 January issue of New Scientist there is an article "Our world might be a giant hologram", which I don't link because I don't understand the New Scientist's policy of allowing or not the linking of its articles, which says that the GEO600 interferometer has found a noise in its data which might be explained by a granularity of space-time.
Could this be last year's January edition? This debate was pretty hot last year but I haven't heart much of it since then. The initial claim was that because of some special features of the GEO600 optics, the effect could only be seen in GEO (if at all).


I was going to ask if anyone's heard anything recently – I found this article – sounds like the debate's on just how much noise would be expected, which in turn depends on the degree of self-focusing present, which depends on the nature (specifically the extent of non-linearity) of the refractive index of vacuum ...
