New Wave Astronomy (Spring 2010). How can we see the universe without using light? A new generation of scientists is working to use gravitational waves—ripples propagating through space and time—to learn about the darkest objects in the cosmos—colliding black holes—and perhaps solve mysteries buried deep in the history of the universe.

  • LIGO Core Optic at CCRG (September 2011). Dr. Michael Landry (a LIGO scientist from Caltech) visited CCRG to present his research on the advanced LIGO experiment and to help us to mount an optic component of the LIGO project in a cleanroom environment in the Semiconductor Micro-systems Fabrication Laboratory (SMFL). The core optic and suspension cage of the left arm of the LIGO experiment in Hanford (WA) (see pictures here). The optic was donated by the LIGO laboratory to CCRG for outreach purposes, as I am part of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration outreach group. It will be displayed in the CCRG computer lab.
