ARC Centre Of Excellence For Gravitational Wave Discovery (Sci NON-ARC Cash)

Grant number: CE170100004 | Funding period: 2017 - 2023

Abstract

This Centre aims to explore the historic first detections of gravitational waves to understand the extreme physics of black holes and warped spacetime, and inspire the next generation of Australian scientists and engineers. The next-generation gravity wave detectors will enable a thousand-fold increase in detection volume and result in the new gravitational wave discoveries, triggering a new era of gravitational wave astrophysics. Building on decades of Australian investment in gravitational wave and pulsar science, this Centre will coalesce research activities into a focussed national programme whose discoveries are intended to experimentally validate Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity..
