Description

Observation Run 3 (O3) is the longest period of data taking for the two Advanced LIGO detectors and the Advanced Virgo detector to date. From April 1st, 2019 to April 30th, 2020, the instruments accumulated 12 months of data, with a 1-month commissioning break in October 2019. In this talk, I will review the performance of the three detectors both separately and within the global network of ground-based gravitational-wave interferometric detectors: sensitivity, duty cycle, noise stability and variations. I will briefly describe the O3 public alerts and the first published results of this run. To conclude, I will summarize the plans of the two collaborations for the coming years: alternatively upgrade phases and data taking periods with improved performance.
