Gravitational waves: the new cosmic messengers

This project contributes to improving the existing Virgo gravity wave observatory in Pisa. At the same time, parts of this project also serve as R&D for the Einstein Telescope. These include the development and testing of instrumentation and software that compensates for Newtonian Noise, the realisation of a 60 cm diameter mirror and the development of a system for frequency dependent squeezing. All these developments will enable better and more gravitational wave signals to be captured.
