Hopefully I can get some knowledgable help on this question. I'm not a physicist but I am an electrical engineer (by education anyway) and a database architect by avocation. I'm a bit of a physics junkie and some of my self study leads to this problem. I see a lot of mention of searching for gravity waves. I guess one of the sources would be massive binary stars (neutron stars or pulsars I suppose). These would cause ripples in spacetime. OK. So people look for gravity waves with the frequency of the stars' rotational period. BUT, to me that is not the frequency of the graviton but rather, it's an amplitude modulation of the gravity field. It would be like amplitude modulation in radio communications where you have an underlying carrier wave at a particular frequency and then you superimpose a lower frequency signal on top of it. In this case, the frequency of the photons involved would be that of the carrier wave. So this leads me to wonder, what is the frequency (or wavelength) of a graviton? If the energy of a photon is h nu and the photon is a massless particle like the graviton then wouldn't a graviton also have an energy equal to its h nu? I mean, if it's a particle then quantum mechanics dictates that it has a probability wave and ergo a wavelength and frequency. So is a graviton able to have a variable wavelength and if so, is there such a thing as an energetic graviton? Everything that discusses gravity seems to indicate that it is a fixed force dependent on mass. This seems to imply that the graviton (if it exists) somehow exists at only one wavelength but that doesn't make any sense to me. So what would be the effect of having gravitons of different wavelengths? Has anybody ever asked that question?
