Previous burst searches with ground-based interferometers have generally been limited to frequencies below 2 kilohertz. However, various models predict gravitational wave emission in the few-kilohertz range from gravitational collapse, neutron star modes, the mergers of some compact binaries or other astrophysical phenomena. In this poster, we present a more detailed look at the search for transient gravitational waves at frequencies up to 6 kHz during the first year of LIGO’s 5th science run, as presented in the talk “All-sky Burst Searches for Gravitational Waves at High Frequencies by Salemi et al.
