The Search for Gravitational Waves

Clock icon

Hicks Building, Hounsfield Rd, Sheffield, S3 7RH

Speakers: Dr Edward Daw

Gravitational waves are testable predictions of Einstein’s theory of  General Relativity. They are thought to be emitted by astrophysical cataclysms – black holes colliding, supernova explosions, even by the big bang itself. In my talk, I discuss gravitational waves and the detectors used to try and probe these elusive, fascinating signals.
