TOAB04 The LIGO Detectors Controls 68

  All three LIGO detectors have reached their design sensitivities. A sky-averaged detection range (SNR > 8) of more than 15 Mpc for inspiral binary neutron stars with masses of 1.4 Msol has been achieved with the two 4 km instruments. The fifth LIGO science started in November 2006 and more than 300 days of coincidence data has been collected so far. The feedback controls system is a major component to make LIGO work and its performance has been crucial to achieve the present sensitivity.
