Since December 2003, the gravitational-wave detector GEO 600 has routinely operated in the dual recycled mode, using a lock acquisition scheme based on the detection of optical sideband power at the dark port. With the detector locking very robustly, the current commissioning work is entirely dedicated to sensitivity improvements. We give a brief overview of the GEO 600 detector, the implementation of dual recycling, and summarize recent work regarding the increase in the detector sensitivity.
