Abstract:

We present the status of advanced construction of the 2.3 t, 920 Hz and 100 mK ultracryogenic resonant bar AURIGA at the INFN Legnaro Lab. Using a fast data acquisition, we have demonstrated in room temperature tests a pulse energy sensitivity of 12 K and the ability to resolve the pulse arrival phase to 1 micro second.
