Infrasound microphones have been installed in VIRGO
On 4-10th of July, AstroCeNT team members (prof. Tomasz Bulik, dr Mariusz Suchenek and Mateusz Pietrzak) visited the VIRGO detector in order to contribute to the Newtonian-noise cancellation system work. The main purpose of that trip was to install a network of 38 infrasound microphones that have…Read more
First observations of ‘mixed’ black hole and neutron star pairs
The Virgo, LIGO and KAGRA scientific collaborations today announced the first observation ever of binary systems consisting of a neutron star (NS) and a black hole (BH). This was made possible by the detection, in January 2020, of gravitational signals (nicknamed GW200105 and GW200115 from the dates of their…Read more
“What is quantum computing?”
On May 25, 2021, the Polish Information Society hosted the World Information Society Day Conference. During the event, prof. Piotr Gawron, leader of the Scientific Computing & Information Technology group at AstroCeNT, gave a lecture entitled “What is quantum computing?” Quantum computing is a large field of…Read more
One more master’s thesis was defended at AstoCeNT
On March 8, Mateusz Pietrzak, a student of the Warsaw University of Technology (Faculty of Electronics and Information Technology), defended his master’s thesis.
The work entitled “Monopulse acoustic radar” was carried out under the supervision of Dr.
Mariusz Suchenek, leader of the Electronics and Data Acquisition and Processing group. From September 2020, Mateusz has been working at AstroCeNT as a technician and dealing with sensors and measurements. He is working on improving the stability of quartz in clock oscillators.
Congratulations on your success, Mateusz!Read more
DarkWave: first student secondment at AstroCeNT
A few days ago Jan Ruhland, a master’s student of Technical University of Munich, came to Warsaw. Jan is currently writing a master’s thesis at the Department of Physics at TUM. This is the first student visit to AstroСeNT, financed from the DarkWave project.Read more
DarkWave is starting
What is the nature of the mysterious dark matter, which is the dominant form of matter present in the Universe and which has given it its current shape? Why is there more matter than antimatter? What information about the Universe can be found in gravitational waves? Which technologies are…Read more
