Samenvatting

A stochastic gravitational-wave background (SGWB) is the superposition of many unresolved and
independent sources. Among these sources are binary black hole mergers (BBH) happening
throughout the Universe. About every 5 to 10 minutes such mergers take place, lasting for only a
few seconds resulting in a “popcorn-like” or intermittent background. We propose a new method
that takes into account the intermittent, “popcorn-like” nature of the BBH background, constituted
by sub-threshold BBH mergers, by searching for bursts of cross-correlated power.
