LIGO Document T1400342-v2
- During LIGO's 5th Science Run (S5), signals simulating various astrophysical phenomena were added to the LIGO detectors for testing and calibration. These simulated signals are known as hardware injections, because they were created by manipulating mirrors in the arms of the interferometers. In this paper, we review the process of employing a matched filter search and detail the results of our adaption of this process to finding hardware injections simulating bursts in S5 data. Of the approximately 60,000 burst injections, there are no remaining unexplained outliers.
