PROGRAM: ICTS Winter School on Experimental Gravitational-Wave Physics
DATES: Monday 23 Dec, 2013 - Saturday 28 Dec, 2013
VENUE: Raja Ramanna Centre for Advanced Technology, Indore
PROGRAM LINK: http://www.icts.res.in/program/GWS2013
A worldwide network of detectors are currently involved in an exciting experimental effort for the first direct detection of gravitational waves (GWs). There is also an ongoing proposal to build a GW detector, called LIGO-India, in India with significant international collaboration. Not only that GW astronomy will open up a fundamentally new observational window to the Universe, the experimental effort for GW detection has been driving precision measurement science for the last few decades.
The ICTS Winter School in Experimental GW Physics is meant to train students, young scientists and engineers on the instrumental science and technology for GW astronomy. The school will feature an intense series of lectures and hands-on sessions covering a number of topics including interferometry, highly stabilized lasers, control systems, etc.
