Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

The Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO) is a network of three detectors built to detect local perturbations in the space-time metric from astrophysical sources These detectors two in Hanford WA and one in Livingston LA are power-recycled Fabry-Perot Michelson interferometers In their fifth science run (S5) between November 2005 and October 2007 these detectors accumulated one year of triple coincident data while operating at their designed sensitivity In this paper we describe the calibration of the instruments in the S5 data set including measurement techniques and uncertainty estimation.
