Physics Colloquium

"The Path Forward in Gravitational-wave astronomy"

Presented by Zsuzsa Marka, Columbia University

Tuesday, October 24, 2017, 3:30 pm — Large Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

On August 17, 2017 the merger of two neutron stars was detected in the form of gravitational-waves by LIGO/Virgo. As a result of over a decade long preparation for multimessenger observations the event was also seen electromagnetically across the full spectrum. The history and future of the multimessenger effort using gravitational-waves will be discussed from an instrumentalist viewpoint.
