GWDAW-8 Abstract: Detector Characterization of Dual-Recycled GEO600

Joshua Smith · AEI Hannover · GEO600

The GEO600 detector is now operating in an optical configuration that combines power recycling and signal recycling. This so called 'dual recycled' configuation presents challenges for data analysis and calibration, both of which rely on having a well-understood detector. This talk will focus on the nuances of the dual-recycled GEO600 and the detector characterization work done during the first weeks of the S3 science run.
