Abstract

Second-generation interferometric gravitational-wave detectors will use a technique called resonant sideband extraction (RSE) to improve the sensitivity in a narrow, tunable, frequency band. We present a configuration in which we use polarization detection to allow a continuously tunable power-recycled RSE interferometer for a control scheme similar to those of the first-generation detectors. A mathematical model describing this configuration and the results from a tabletop prototype are presented that demonstrate this configuration.
