Gravitational waves provide a window to probe general relativity (GR) under extreme conditions. The recent observations of GW190412 and GW190814 are unique high-mass-ratio mergers that enable the observation of gravitational-wave harmonics beyond the dominant (ℓ,m)=(2,2) mode. Using these events, we search for physics beyond GR by allowing the source parameters measured from the subdominant harmonics to deviate from that of the dominant mode. All results are consistent with GR. We constrain the chirp mass as measured by the (ℓ,m)=(3,3) mode to be within 0-3+5% of the dominant mode when we allow both the masses and spins of the subdominant modes to deviate. If we allow only the mass parameters to deviate, we constrain the chirp mass of the (3,3) mode to be within ±1% of the expected value from GR. © 2020 authors.
