Résultats de LIGO-Virgo durant O3, après un mois d’observationBinaire trou noir et étoile à neutronC’est une une jolie moisson de données qui a demandé beaucoup de travail et qui vient récompenser les scientifiques après seulement un mois de campagne de détection d’ondes gravitationnelles par Virgo et LIGO. O3, comme est appelée cette troisième campagne d’observation, a commencé le 1er avril et devrait durer douze mois. Les améliorations apportées à […]
Création de la startup SigmaWorksLaboratoires GEOAZUR et LAGRANGELe laboratoire Geoazur et le laboratoire Lagrange ont développé de nombreux projets autour des équipements du site instrumenté de l’Observatoire de la Côte d’Azur (Caussols), en particulier dans le domaine des liens optiques entre la terre et l’espace pour la métrologie de l’espace et du temps-fréquence, l’astronomie et les télécommunications optiques. Les développements de ces […]
