Synergies between CTAO and Gravitational Wave Observatories
23/06/2022 @ 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM CEST
On 2017 August 17, the merger of a binary neutron-star system observed through gravitational waves and multi-wavelength emission from gamma rays, X-ray, ultraviolet-optical-near infrared, to radio marked the history of multi-messenger astronomy, showing its tremendous potential to probe the physics of the most energetic events of the Universe. Multi-messenger discoveries are unveiling the rich physics of neutron star mergers in association with gamma-ray bursts and kilonovae, probing relativistic astrophysics, nuclear physics, nucleosynthesis, and cosmology.
In this webinar, Prof. Marica Branchesi will give an overview of challenges and perspectives of current and future gravitational-wave detectors operating in synergy with high-energy and very high-energy observatories. In particular, she will explore the synergies among CTAO and the Einstein telescope.
