Online-Vortrag über Europas Gravitationswellen-Detektor der nächsten Generation. [more]
Mit Gravitationswellen belauschen Physiker:innen seit September 2015 zum ersten Mal in der Geschichte der Menschheit die Dunkle Seite des Universums und hören Schwarze Löcher und Neutronensterne verschmelzen. Möglich ist dies dank hochpräziser Laser, die in Hannover speziell für diesen Zweck entwickelt wurden. [more]

Science2Go | Gravitational Waves and Electromagnetic Waves from a Compact binary Merger

Public talk
Gravitational waves are ripples of space-time predicted by Albert Einstein almost 100 years ago. In 2015, the first direct detection of the gravitational waves was achieved. The source was a merger of two black holes. In 2017, the first direct detection of gravitational waves and electromagnetic waves was achieved. The source was a merger of two neutron stars. In this talk, I would like to present what these scientific achievements brought us and what the prospect is. [more]
