Solar wind triggering of geomagnetic disturbances and strong (M>6.8) earthquakes during the November - December 2004 period
This technique reduces the effect of the external seismic disturbances by four orders of magnitude and promises to greatly enhance the stability and reliability of the current generation of gravitational wave detector.

Wind braking of magnetars
The principle of operation of these detectors is based on the idea that the GW excites the first longitudinal mode of the bar, which is isolated from seismic and acoustic disturbances and is cooled to cryogenic temperatures to reduce the thermal noise.
Studying the coincidence excess between EXPLORER and NAUTILUS during 1998
Noise temperatures as low as 300 mK (0.3 K) were obtained . This showed the feasibility of cryogenic antennae. Seismic, acoustic and thermal disturbances were reasonably under control. The group felt ready to take the next step towards developing a large antenna again.
