Rainer Weiss, 2017 Nobel Prize winner for the discovery of gravity waves

UMass Dartmouth is delighted to host Nobel laureate and professor emeritus at MIT, Rainer Weiss. Along with Kip Thorne and Barry Barish of the California Institute of Technology, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2017 "for decisive contributions to the LIGO detector and the observation of gravitational waves".  Talk Title: Probing the Universe with Gravitational Waves Talk Description: The observations of gravitational waves from the mergers of compact binary sources opens a new way to learn about the universe as well as to test General Relativity in the limit of strong gravitational interactions – the dynamics of massive bodies traveling at relativistic speeds in a highly curved space-time. The lecture will describe some of the difficult history of gravitational waves proposed about 100 years ago. The concepts used in the instruments and the methods for data analysis that enable the measurement of gravitational waves will be presented. The results derived from the measured waveforms, their relation to the Einstein field equations and the astrophysical implications are discussed. The talk will end with a vision for the future of gravitational wave astronomy. Speaker Bio: Rainer Weiss, Born Sept 29, 1932 Berlin, Germany, MIT BS 1955, PhD 1962, Tufts University Physics faculty 1960-1962, Post doc Princeton 1962-1964, MIT Physics faculty 1964-2001, emeritus 2001---, Adjunct Professor of Physics LSU 2001--- .Primary areas of research: Atomic clocks, Cosmic background radiation measurements, Gravitational wave detection.
