Abstract

We reanalyze the detection possibilities for gravitational waves arising from cosmological first order phase transitions. We discuss the stochastic gravitational wave background corresponding to the three expected scenarios of phase transition dynamics. We then perform an analysis on the detection possibilities for each case using sensitivities for the next generation ground-based detector Cosmic Explorer and the current LISA proposal, using two analysis methods. We find that having both detectors allows wide detection possibilities over much of the parameter space, including those corresponding to several early Universe models.
