Simulating Gravitational Antennas of Weber Type Using LC Circuits

  • G. N. Izmailov


The paper discusses the scope for simulating a Weber gravitational antenna by means of a superconducting LC circuit. A solution is given to the oscillation equation and an estimate is made of the noise. A study is made of the scope for direct use of such a circuit to record gravitational waves. A three-dimensional structure is proposed consisting of superconducting LC circuits whose sensitivity is higher than that of a scheme with one circuit and which has a different direction pattern.
