Source localizations with the network of space-based gravitational wave detectors
The sky localization of the gravitational wave (GW) source is an important scientific objective for GW observations. A network of space-based GW detectors dramatically improves the sky localization
Gravitational Lensing of Continuous Gravitational Waves
Continuous gravitational waves are analogous to monochromatic light and could therefore be used to detect wave effects such as interference or diffraction. This would be possible with strongly lensed
Motion of Spinning Particles around Electrically Charged Black Hole in Eddington-inspired Born-Infeld Gravity
It is widely accepted that general relativity (GR) is an effective infrared gravitational theory and should be modified in the ultraviolet regime. Therefore, modified gravities are helpful to expand
Geometric tilt-to-length coupling in precision interferometry: mechanisms and analytical descriptions
Tilt-to-length coupling is a technical term for the cross-coupling of angular or lateral jitter into an interferometric phase signal. It is an important noise source in precision interferometers and
Horndeski fermion-boson stars
We establish the existence of static and spherically symmetric fermion-boson stars, in a low energy effective model of (beyond) Horndeski theories. These stars are in equilibrium, and are composed


The Taiji Program in Space for gravitational wave physics and the nature of gravity
The discovery of gravitational waves (GWs) by the LIGO collaboration [1] in 2016 has provided a direct test on the prediction made by Albert Einstein a century ago based on his general theory of
The TianQin project: Current progress on science and technology
TianQin is a planned space-based gravitational wave (GW) observatory consisting of three earth orbiting satellites with an orbital radius of about $10^5~{\rm km}$. The satellites will form a
Science with the TianQin observatory: Preliminary results on massive black hole binaries
We investigate the prospects of detecting gravitational waves from coalescing massive black hole binaries in the Universe with the TianQin observatory, a space-based gravitational wave interferometer
Probing the origin of our universe through primordial gravitational waves by Ali CMB project
Gravitational waves (GW), which were predicted by Einstein in 1916 based on the classical theory of General Relativity (GR), were recently detected by LIGO [1]. This breakthrough is expected to
Sky localization of space-based gravitational wave detectors
Localizing the sky position of the gravitational wave source is a key scientific goal for gravitational wave observations. Employing the Fisher Information Matrix Approximation, we compute the
TianQin: a space-borne gravitational wave detector
TianQin is a proposal for a space-borne detector of gravitational waves in the millihertz frequencies. The experiment relies on a constellation of three drag-free spacecraft orbiting the Earth.
Optimizing orbits for TianQin
TianQin is a geocentric space-based gravitational-wave observatory mission consisting of three drag-free controlled satellites in an equilateral triangle with an orbital radius of [Formula: see
Current status of space gravitational wave antenna DECIGO and B-DECIGO
The Deci-hertz Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (DECIGO) is a future Japanese space mission with a frequency band of 0.1 Hz to 10 Hz. DECIGO aims at the detection of primordial
Science with the TianQin observatory: Preliminary results on testing the no-hair theorem with ringdown signals
We study the capability of the space-based gravitational wave observatory TianQin to test the no-hair theorem of general relativity, using the ringdown signal from the coalescence of massive black
