There are several important manuscripts which discuss the prospect of using both ASTROD (and LISA) to detect gravitational waves that are generated by solar g-modes:

  • Response of a Spaceborn Gravitational Wave Antenna to Solar Oscillations
  • The Effect of Solar Oscillations on Space Gravitational Wave Experiments

One of the most important factors in these calculations is the size of the g-mode amplitudes at the surface of the Sun. Several recent manuscripts include:

  • Tracking Solar Gravity Modes: The Dynamics of the Solar Core
    • R García et al (2007)
    • May Science Express Report
  • The Search for g Modes
    • T Appourchaux (2003)
    • Proc. of SOHO 12/GONG+ 2002 ESA SP-517 131-8: NASA ADS
  • Observational Upper Limits to Low-Degree Solar g-Modes
  • Observational Searches for Solar g-modes: Some Theoretical Considerations
  • The Search for Solar Gravity Modes
  • Theory of Solar Oscillations
    • D Gough (1985)
    • Future missions in solar, heliospheric and space plasma physics, eds Rolfe E and Battrick B, ESA SP-235 183-97

Here is some manuscripts giving an up-to-date status on the mission concepts and strain sensitivity curves for ASTROD.

  • ASTROD I: Mission concept and Venus flybys
  • Separation of the gravitationa-wave signals and the solar oscillation signals
    • W Ni and X Xu (2000)
    • Gravitational Waves: Third Edoardo Amaldi Conference edited by S Meshkov.
