Project Description

A position for a suitably qualified postgraduate student has become available for experimental work in gravitational physics. This work will involve the development of novel gravitational instrumentation, aimed at fine displacement sensing at the picometre level, and below, and at frequencies over the range 20 kHz–0.1 Hz. The equipment developed will be aimed primarily at addressing noise problems in gravitational wave detectors such as LIGO, and VIRGO—an exciting new area in Astronomy. However, it will also be used for testing putative gravitational coupling to entropy. There will be the opportunity also of engaging in measurements of gravity gradient. Interest in gravitational (mathematical) modelling would be advantageous.
