Special announcement

Gravitational waves have become a very hot topic in astrophysics since their detection by LIGO in 2015. This means that also possible precursors are in the focus of research – general relativistic research because these objects are either black holes or neutron stars. The 2017 Biermann Lecturer, Masaru Shibata from the Kyoto University, uses numerical simulations and general relativity (or numerical relativity for short) to study the merger of such extreme objects and the properties of both the electromagnetic radiation and gravitational waves emitted during these events.

Axionen und Mikrowellen – ein neues Experiment zum Nachweis Dunkler Materie

Wie kann man sehr leichte, unsichtbare und nur schwach wechselwirkende Elementarteilchen nachweisen? Diese Frage steckt auch im Dunkle-Materie-Rätsel: Ein Großteil der Masse im Universum sendet kein Licht aus und kann daher nicht direkt beobachtet werden. Vieles spricht dafür, dass ein bisher unbekanntes Elementarteilchen diese „Dunkle Materie“ ausmacht. Stefan Knirck vom Max-Planck-Institut für Physik stellt einen neuen Teilchen-Kandidaten vor: das Axion. Er erklärt, wie ein neues Experiment versucht, es nachzuweisen – und was Mikrowellen und ein Waschmittel damit zu tun haben. [more]
