The paper is Limits on Gravitational Wave Emission From Selected Pulsars Using LIGO Data
Abbott et al, Phys Rev Lett 94 (2005) 181103.  This presents some of the first science results from real LIGO data.

An older Physics Today article about LIGO ia at LIGO and the Detection of Gravity Waves

A very nice longer paper by Sigg that includes a good short introduction to gravity waves is at Gravititational Waves

Some of the Neutron Star physics associated with these measurements is discussed by Owen Maximum elastic deformation of compact stars with exotic equations of state
