PerAPS 2021: Seminario di Marica Branchesi
Ad inaugurare il ciclo di Seminari di Fisica organizzati da Dipartimento di Fisica e Geologia, INFN e CNR-IOM, Venerdì 16 Marzo 2021 alle 16:00 avremo Marica Branchesi del Gran Sasso Science Institute (GSSI) dell’Aquila.
“Present and future of multi-messenger astronomy including gravitational-wave”
A new exploration of the Universe has recently started through gravitational-wave observations. On August 17, 2017, the first observation of gravitational waves from the inspiral and merger of a binary neutron-star system by the Advanced LIGO and Virgo network, followed by 1.7 s later by a weak short gamma-ray burst detected by the Fermi and Integral satellites initiated the most extensive world-wide observing campaign which led to the detection of multi-wavelength electromagnetic counterparts. Multi-messenger discoveries are revealing the enigmas of the most energetic transients in the sky, probing neutron-stars physics, relativistic astrophysics, nuclear physics, nucleosynthesis, and cosmology. The talk will give an overview of the astrophysical implications of the gravitational-wave and multi-messenger observations, the prospects and challenges of the current and future gravitational wave detectors.
Il seminario sarà trasmesso sulla piattaforma Zoom e diffuso in livestream via Facebook. Maggiori informazioni sul seminario e il programma di seminari del 2021 possono essere trovate sulla pagina web del Dipartimento.
