In order to enable an iCal export link, your account needs to have an API key created. This key enables other applications to access data from within Indico even when you are neither using nor logged into the Indico system yourself with the link provided. Once created, you can manage your key at any time by going to 'My Profile' and looking under the tab entitled 'HTTP API'. Further information about HTTP API keys can be found in the Indico documentation.
Additionally to having an API key associated with your account, exporting private event information requires the usage of a persistent signature. This enables API URLs which do not expire after a few minutes so while the setting is active, anyone in possession of the link provided can access the information. Due to this, it is extremely important that you keep these links private and for your use only. If you think someone else may have acquired access to a link using this key in the future, you must immediately create a new key pair on the 'My Profile' page under the 'HTTP API' and update the iCalendar links afterwards.

Laser interferometry in Gravitational wave and Axion detectors

7a, building 7
The laser interferometric gravitational wave observatories LIGO, VIRGO, and GEO 600 have pushed interferometer technology into new territory far beyond what was believed to be possible only 20 years ago. Displacement sensitivities as low as 10zm/rtHz or 10^-20m/rtHz over a wide range of frequencies will soon be reached and will enable us to detect gravitational waves from neutron star and black hole mergers. This has been made possible by the development of new laser sources, improved optical components, seismic isolation and suspension systems, and a much better understanding of how to describe light itself. These new technologies and improved understanding is now influencing other areas of physics like Axion or hidden sector photon searches. I will give an overview of the state of the art in laser interferometry as used in LIGO and how it can be applied to Axion searches.
