Both the noise power spectrum and signal transfer function must be well known to reliably extract candidates of gravitational wave (GW) signals using linear Wiener filters. We review AURIGA data analysis techniques relative to post-filtering statistical tests and validation. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    In this work, we have performed high-sensitivity measurements on the dark current and the noise current of infrared hot-electron transistors (IHETs) and their constituent quantum-well infrared photodetectors (QWIPs) at 4.2 K. We found that the dominant noise of the QWIPs in this regime is not...
