The analysis of Gravitational Waves (GW) data from the Advanced LIGO provides the mass of each companion of binary black holes as the source of GWs. The observations reveal that the mass of events corresponding to the binary black holes are much larger than the mass of astrophysical black holes. In this work, we suggest the Primordial Black Holes (PBHs) as the source of LIGO events. Assuming that $100\%$ of the dark matter is made of PBHs, we estimate the rate at which these objects make…

Prospects for the observation of Primordial Black Hole evaporation with the Southern Wide field of view Gamma-ray Observatory
Primordial Black Holes (PBHs) are remnants of objects formed in the early Universe. Their lifetime is an increasing function of their mass, so PBHs in the right mass range can end their lives in an
BlackHawk: A tool for computing Black Hole evaporation
We present the public code \texttt{BlackHawk}, a powerful tool to compute the evaporation of any distribution of Schwarzschild and Kerr Black Holes and the emission spectra of Hawking radiation.
Fermi-GBM Observation of GRB 090717034: $\chi^2$ Test Confirms Evidence of Gravitational Lensing by a Supermassive Black Hole with Million Solar Mass
Gravitational lensing of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) can provide an opportunity to probe the massive compact objects in the universe at different redshifts. We have discovered two consecutive pulses in
Search for Sub-Solar Mass Binaries with Einstein Telescope and Cosmic Explorer
A possible detection of sub-solar mass ultra-compact objects would lead to new perspectives on the existence of black holes that are not of astrophysical origin and/or pertain to formation scenarios

GW190521: A Binary Black Hole Merger with a Total Mass of 150  M_{⊙}.
It is inferred that the primary black hole mass lies within the gap produced by (pulsational) pair-instability supernova processes, with only a 0.32% probability of being below 65  M⊙, which can be considered an intermediate mass black hole (IMBH).
GW190814: Gravitational Waves from the Coalescence of a 23 Solar Mass Black Hole with a 2.6 Solar Mass Compact Object
We report the observation of a compact binary coalescence involving a 22.2–24.3 M ⊙ black hole and a compact object with a mass of 2.50–2.67 M ⊙ (all measurements quoted at the 90% credible level).
