LISA - Laser Interferometer Space Antenna
A space detector for a new messenger, the gravitational waves
Modern astronomy will be gravitational astronomy!
It was a century after Albert Einstein’s prediction that on September 14, 2015, with the announcement
of the first direct detection of gravitational waves, physicists around the world have seen the
physicists all over the world have seen the field of possibilities expand greatly.
Traditional astronomy was born with the observation in the visible range
then radio, X and gamma waves. However, the massive objects of the universe are not necessarily
necessarily brilliant in the electro-magnetic sense of the term.
Today, with gravitational waves, the information from these objects
is recorded by terrestrial detectors and tomorrow will be recorded by space detectors.
This meeting will be an opportunity to introduce this ‘new’ field of physics for the LPCCaen.
Being a member of the LISA consortium since 2018, we will pay particular attention to the presentation of the space interferometer: LISA (Laser Interferometer Space Antenna)
