The Einstein Telescope: a third-generation gravitational wave observatory
Advanced gravitational wave interferometers, currently under realization, will soon permit the detection of gravitational waves from astronomical sources. To open the era of precision gravitational
Sensitivity studies for third-generation gravitational wave observatories
Advanced gravitational wave detectors, currently under construction, are expected to directly observe gravitational wave signals of astrophysical origin. The Einstein Telescope (ET), a
Mapping spacetimes with LISA: inspiral of a test body in a ‘quasi-Kerr’ field
The future LISA detector will constitute the prime instrument for high-precision gravitational wave observations. Among other goals, LISA is expected to materialize a 'spacetime-mapping' program that
Observationally constraining gravitational wave emission from short gamma-ray burst remnants
Observations of short gamma-ray bursts indicate ongoing energy injection following the prompt emission, with the most likely candidate being the birth of a rapidly rotating, highly magnetised neutron
Modelling magnetically deformed neutron stars
Rotating deformed neutron stars are important potential sources for ground-based gravitational wave interferometers such as LIGO, GEO600 and VIRGO. One mechanism that may lead to significant
Einstein gravitational wave Telescope conceptual design study
This document describes the Conceptual Design of a third generation gravitational wave observatory named Einstein Telescope (“ET”). The design of this new research infrastructure has been realised
Pulsar glitches: the crust is not enough.
This Letter shows that the nondissipative entrainment coupling between the neutron superfluid and the nuclear lattice leads to a less mobile crust superfluid, effectively reducing the moment of inertia associated with the angular momentum reservoir.
Magnetohydrodynamics of superfluid and superconducting neutron star cores
Mature neutron stars are cold enough to contain a number of superfluid and superconducting components. These systems are distinguished by the presence of additional dynamical degrees of freedom
Scientific objectives of Einstein Telescope
The advanced interferometer network will herald a new era in observational astronomy. There is a very strong science case to go beyond the advanced detector network and build detectors that operate
Zoom and whirl: Eccentric equatorial orbits around spinning black holes and their evolution under gravitational radiation reaction
We study eccentric equatorial orbits of a test-body around a Kerr black hole under the influence of gravitational radiation reaction. We have adopted a well established two-step approach: assuming
