International symposium on “Large TPCs for low-energy rare event detection”

The ninth international symposium on “Large TPCs for low-energy rare event detection” will be held in Paris on the 12th-14th of December 2018. The purpose of the meeting is an extensive discussion of present and future projects using a large TPC for low energy, low background detection of rare events (low-energy neutrinos, double beta decay, dark matter, solar axions). There […]

LIGO and Virgo Announce Four New Gravitational-Wave Detections

The figure on the left shows the localizations of the various gravitational-wave detections in the sky. The triple detections are labelled as HLV, from the initials of the three interferometers (LIGO-Hanford, LIGO-Livingston and Virgo) that observed the signals. The reduced areas of the triple events demonstrate the capabilities of the global gravitational-wave network.

On Saturday 1st December 2018, scientists attending the Gravitational Wave Physics and Astronomy Workshop in College Park, Maryland, presented new results from searches for coalescing cosmic objects, such as pairs of black holes and pairs of neutron stars, by the LIGO and Virgo detectors. The LIGO and Virgo interferometers have now confidently detected gravitational waves from a total of 10 […]
