GRAVITATIONAL WAVE ASTRONOMY

Hannover - city of excellence: Quantum Frontiers

Here you will find information about "Quantum Frontiers".

The research team working under physicist Prof. Karsten Danzmann contributed towards the efforts to pick up the first signal of a gravitational wave on 14 September 2015 using its gravitational wave detector. The Director of the Institute for Gravitational Physics at the University of Hanover led the German-British GEO600 Gravitational Wave Detector Project and is considered to be the spiritual father of the LISA satellite mission whose objective is to detect gravitational waves in space. He explains what gravitational wave astronomy is all about, what the discovery of the first wave means for the world and what the LISA mission could change.
