A prototype laser for the Einstein Telescope

AEI researchers develop prototype of a pre-stabilized laser system at 1550 nm wavelength for third-generation gravitational-wave detectors more

Observation of a runaway black hole

The final black hole left behind after a binary black hole merger can attain recoil velocities up to 5000 km/s, large enough to be ejected from any galaxy. The authors find the first evidence for a large recoil velocity from a gravitational-wave signal, with a velocity of ~1500 km/s (90% uncertainty of ~900 km/s). more
