The effects of gravitational waves on a superconducting antenna and its sensitivity
- 44 Downloads
In this paper we propose a set of generalized London equations which can describe the effects of gravitational waves on a superconducting antenna. We point out that a superconducting antenna with large quality factorQ will behave differently from a normal antenna, especially in the resonant case. The expression of the signal-to-noise ratio for a superconducting antenna is derived.
