LIGO Document G1900803-v1
- A diagram illustrating how BNS and 30–30M☉ BBH coalescences are distributed in redshift, along with horizon redshifts for aLIGO O2, LIGO A+, LIGO Voyager, and Cosmic Explorer 2.
The coalescences are generated starting with a Madau-Dickinson SFR, and then evolved forward with an exponential merger time distribution with a characteristic delay of 100 Myr.
- A closely related version of this figure (with Cosmic Explorer 1 instead of Voyager) appears in the LIGO Laboratory whitepaper for the Astro2020 Decadal Survey (arXiv:1903.04615).
