Abstract

The German–British laser-interferometric gravitational-wave detector GEO 600 is currently being commissioned as part of a worldwide network of gravitational-wave detectors. GEO 600 recently became the first kilometre-scale interferometer to employ dual recycling—an optical configuration that combines power recycling and signal recycling. We present a brief overview of the commissioning of this dual-recycled interferometer, the performance results achieved during a subsequent extended data-taking period, and the plans intended to bring GEO 600 to its final configuration.
