Note unusual time: Seminar begins at 12.45

Gravitational wave detectors now have a system noise level less than a power spectral density noise level of less than a Planck time: that is, if the proof masses in LIGO executed a random walk of Planck mass per Planck time, it would conflict with current data. This (rather informal) talk will discuss the possibility that new forms of quantum-gravitational noise might be detectable in other interferometer designs, such as GEO -600, and particularly in holographic quantum gravity theories.
