With the detectors currently off, LIGO has detected and gathered an abundance of data from the second observing run (O2). Some of which, captures the most recent triggers that are potential candidates for future gravitational waves, are analyzed more thoroughly. My responsibility as a student researcher is to perform independent checks on four of the most recent Compact Binary Coalescence (CBC) triggers. In order to do so, I compare the \(h(t)\) Omega scans of these events to the Gravity Spy classes. Omega scans are a detector characterization tool to help measure the Signal-to-Noise-Ratio (SNR) of transient noises during detections. This helps scientists distinguish the difference between a gravitational wave signal, which looks like a `chirp' versus a glitch in the data. Gravity Spy is a citizen science program that helps LIGO in classifying glitches to improve machine learning for gravitational wave signals. For each event I determine if it looks like one of the known categories of solved or unsolved glitches seen in the Advanced LIGO detectors? My results are then recorded in the O2 event detection checklist. Omega scans are a `burst-type' search pipeline that detect glitches efficiently. The Omega scan is labeled using time measured in seconds on the x-axis, frequency measured in Hz on the y-axis and the signal measured is normalized to demonstrate how `loud' the noise is.
This is the official Leiden Observatory thesis template. It is optimised for writing a Bachelor or Master thesis in Astronomy and contains integrated custom Astronomy units. It supports a cover image, title page, fully automated nomenclature and more. The colour palette is selected around the colour of the Leiden University logo, but all logos are interchangeable.

The American Astronomical Society (AAS) has developed a markup package to assist authors in preparing manuscripts intended for submission to all the AAS-affiliated journals. The journals are the Astrophysical Journal (ApJ), the Astronomical Journal (AJ), ApJ Supplements (ApJS), Letters (ApJL), The Planetary Science Journal (PSJ), and Research Notes of the American Astronomical society (RNAAS). The latest LaTeX classfile is AASTeX v6.3.1 and it can be obtained here. The sample631.tex template uses this classfile to illustrate some of the newer features for submissions to the main Journals. Authors should consult the extensive guide for all the features in AASTeX v6.3.1. Once your manuscript is complete, simply use the "Submit to Journal" option in the Overleaf editor to submit your files directly to the journal for processing. Note that you will still need to log on to the submission site to supply additional meta-data. The transfer to the peer review site can take some time so please be patient. The editorial office will contact you when your submission has been processed and is ready for the final meta-data input. If you're new to LaTeX, check out our free online introduction to help you get started, or please get in touch if you have any questions.
