Unique infrasound sensor has been developed at AstroCeNT
Group 2 led by Prof. Bulik and group 3 led by Dr. Suchenek have developed a unique infrasound sensor. It will find its application both in cutting-edge scientific research and commercial projects.
“While most commercial solutions are very expensive, we have managed to significantly reduce the cost of such a solution, which is crucial in applications where tens or even hundreds of precise sensors are needed. The first task we will set for our sensors is the study of atmospheric Newtonian noise in VIRGO. The next will be the study of infrasound propagation, and research related to wind turbines and wind farms”, says Prof. Bulik.
One of the important areas of AstroCeNT’s activity is education. On the basis of research groups, PhD students conduct research related to the study of gravitational waves and dark matter. The results of this work will be embodied.
We asked our PhD students to talk about what they do under the guidance of their advisors and why they chose AstroCeNT.
A large shipment of important electronic equipment has just arrived at AstroCeNT. There are three-channel laboratory power supplies, an arbitration generator and stationary multimeters. This equipment will be used for the Dark Wave and other Astrocent seismic and acoustic measurement projects.
Oscilloscopes were delivered to the laboratory earlier. And next month we expect a large batch of laboratory furniture. Soon, the laboratory will be fully prepared for new scientific and industrial challenges of any complexity.
