Electromagnetic counterpart to gravitational wave emission detected

On the 16th of October 2017 two press conferences have announced an historical discovery: the simultaneous detection of gravitational waves and electromagnetic waves from a gamma-ray burst. The event, caused by the merger of two neutron stars, marks the beginning of a new era: the era of gravitational wave astronomy.

2017 Nobel Prize in Physics

The 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics has been awarded to Rainer Weiss, Barry C. Barish, and Kip S. Thorne "for decisive contributions to the LIGO detector and the observation of gravitational waves".

Congress of the Physics Department

The congress was held on June 28-29, 2017. The congress has offered a snapshot of the research done in our Department to the academic community, the media, and the public at large. Oral and poster presentations, and pictures of the event, are available to download.
