News: gravitational waves
A team of international scientists including experts from the University of Adelaide has revealed an entirely new phenomenon in the Universe. They have detected the death spiral and merger of the two of the most extreme objects in the Universe, a neutron star and a black hole.
Australian Researchers from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Gravitational Wave Discovery (OzGrav) team, which includes scientists from the University of Adelaide, are close to detecting a new type of gravitational wave, which could provide insights into one of the strangest things in the Universe.
University of Adelaide’s Professor Peter Veitch is among four scientists who together have been awarded the country’s most prestigious award in scientific research, the Prime Minister’s Prize for Science.
University of Adelaide researchers are part of a team of scientists who have observed the biggest black hole merger so far detected.
An internationally esteemed scientist who helped detect gravitational waves produced by the merger of two black holes has been appointed the University of Adelaide’s Head of School for Physical Sciences.
Researchers have developed a new type of deformable mirror that could increase the sensitivity of ground-based gravitational wave detectors.
University of Adelaide physics researchers have been involved in new collaborative study which has revealed a possible collision of two neutron stars.
