Ripples from the Dark Side of the Universe – a bright future ahead

In this talk Sir James will discuss progress in the field of gravitational wave detection, from the first days of the aluminium bar detectors to the present time, where the laser interferometer detectors Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo have allowed gravitational waves to be detected and are opening up a new field of gravitational multi-messenger astrophysics with a number of ground breaking discoveries. Many experimental challenges had to be overcome and new challenges are presenting themselves as we look to further enhance the performance of ground based detectors and look to lower frequencies with the space based detector LISA.

The prize lecture will be webcast live and the video recording of the event will be available shortly after the event.

This event will have live subtitles provided by Stagetext working with MyClearText.
