GWDAW-8 Abstract: Search results for burst gravitational waves with TAMA data

Masaki Ando · University of Tokyo · TAMA


In this talk, we will present search results for burst gravitational waves with TAMA data. In TAMA about 2000 hours of data have been obtained in two data taking runs. These data were processed with excess power filter to extract the burst signals whose waveforms are not known well. In addition, we implemented non-Gaussian-noise rejection codes in order to reduce the fake event rate; the noise rejection pipeline includes the time-scale selection of the event and veto analysis with auxiliary signals.
