Time shifting the output of gravitational wave detectors operating in coincidence is a convenient way of estimating the background in a search for short-duration signals. In this paper, we show how non-stationary data affect the background estimation precision. We present a method of measuring the fluctuations of the data and computing its effects on a coincident search. In particular, we show that for fluctuations of moderate amplitude, time slides larger than the fluctuation time scales can be used. We also recall how the false alarm variance saturates with the number of time shifts.
A precise and fast Fabry-Perot cavity polarimeter, installed in the HERA tunnel in the summer of 2003, was used to measure the longitudinal polarisation of the lepton beam. A complete theoretical model has been developed in order to control at the per mill level the degree of circular polarisation of the laser beam. The transport of this quantity within the whole optical setup has also been performed and controlled at the same level of precision. This is the first time that such a precision is achieved in the difficult, hostile and noisy environment of a particle collider.
