The third and, for the time being, last laser system for the US LIGO gravitational wave detectors has started off on its journey from Hannover to Hanford (Washington). The powerful laser for the “Advanced LIGO” phase was developed by the Laser Zentrums Hannover (LZH e.V.) together with the Albert Einstein Institute Hannover (AEI) and the company neoLASE.

Another high-power laser for the wave chasers
