Postdoc at AstroCeNT
On the physics side, research at AstroCeNT is primarily focused on studies of gravitational waves and dark matter, as well as on related topics of astronomy, particle cosmology and particle physics. On the technological side, our prime objective is to specialise in R&D on ultra-sensitive instruments for low background and low count rate particle astrophysics experiments, primarily, but not exclusively, in dark matter searches and gravitational waves.

Scientists have discovered over 100 black holes!
The sources of the gravitational wave signals recorded during O3a cover a wide range of astrophysical parameters. Among them there are phenomena consistent with three types of collisions: two black holes (BBH), two neutron stars (BNS) and mixed systems composed of a neutron star and a black hole (NSBH).
