Continuous Gravitational Waves

Continuous Gravitational Waves

The primary goal of this permanent independent research group is to detect and study continuous gravitational waves, which are expected from the population of Galactic neutron stars. The detection of continuous waves would allow to unveil stars that would otherwise remain invisible to us, and probe them through a messenger which would carry important information about their internal structure and composition.
