Pulsar Scintillometry with VLBI

2017 is the fiftieth anniversary of the discovery of the pulsar and Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI). In the past twenty years, VLBI has been used in pulsar observations to study pulsar scintillation and scattering due to density variations in the ionized interstellar medium (IISM). With VLBI, it is possible to characterize and in some cases image the scattered image of the pulsar. This…

Sackler Lecture: Gravitational-Wave Discoveries Driving the Promise of Multi-Messenger Astronomy

Sackler Speaker: Vicky Kalogera (Northwestern University)

Abstract: The LIGO detectors have opened for us a new way of studying compact objects in the time domain with direct detections of gravitational-wave bursts from binary mergers of compact objects. I will highlight what current results imply and what we can look forward to in terms of advancing our understanding of the densest…

Sackler Lecture: ‘Einstein’s Waves: New Cosmic Sounds’

Sackler Speaker: Vicky Kalogera (Northwestern University)

Abstract: One century following Einstein’s prediction of spacetime disturbances and gravitational waves, the laser-enabled special detectors LIGO achieved the most accurate measurement ever made by humans across science and engineering and revealed to us the gravitational-wave signals produced by the most powerful collisions of…
