Abstract

The Advanced Virgo project was funded in 2009 with the aim of improving the sensitivity of the Virgo interferometric detector for gravitational waves by a factor of ten, which corresponds to an increase in the detection rate by about three orders of magnitude. The upgrade is now close to completion: the new interferometer will enter its commissioning phase in 2016. The new detector will be hosted in the same infrastructure as Virgo, but many technological upgrades have been put in place to reach the sensitivity goal. In this paper the detector design and the observational perspectives are discussed.

N2 - The Advanced Virgo project was funded in 2009 with the aim of improving the sensitivity of the Virgo interferometric detector for gravitational waves by a factor of ten, which corresponds to an increase in the detection rate by about three orders of magnitude. The upgrade is now close to completion: the new interferometer will enter its commissioning phase in 2016. The new detector will be hosted in the same infrastructure as Virgo, but many technological upgrades have been put in place to reach the sensitivity goal. In this paper the detector design and the observational perspectives are discussed.
