Advanced LIGO -- An International Partnership
Advanced LIGO will bring to fruition years of global research and development in key areas of LIGO technology. A number of U.S. and international institutions play lead roles in the delivery of AdLIGO subsystems. Caltech and MIT, the institutions that operate LIGO on behalf of the NSF and under the auspices of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration, continue to provide critical R&D, testing and integration in concert with the international partners.
