THE FIRST DIRECT DETECTION OF GRAVITATIONAL WAVES2016.04.28 6:53 - admin
On September 14, 2015 the two LIGO detectors simultaneously observed a gravitational-wave signal coming from the merger of two stellar-mass black holes. After very quick look at the history of gravitational-wave research, the observation as well as detectors, search algorithms, and source properties will be described in more detail. The contribution of the Polish POLGRAW group to the discovery will be presented.
