Advanced interferometric gravitational-wave detectors: status and prospects

Abstract : A worldwide network of second generation, more sensitive, gravitational-wave detectors is being setup. Its first two members are the Advanced LIGO detectors (aLIGO) who started taking data in September 2015 and detected the signal known as GW150914, a binary black hole coalescence. The upgrade of the Advanced Virgo detector (AdV) is about to come to an end. After its commissioning phase, AdV will join aLIGO in the network, followed a couple years later by the KAGRA cryogenics underground detector, currently under construction in Japan. In this talk, we present the status of these different projects and discuss the prospects of the growing network of detectors, at the dawn of the gravitational-wave astronomy.
