Mini-course in Gravitational Waves and the LIGO Experiment
Free and Open to the Public
The Outreach Committee for the Physics Department is pleased to announce a series of four lectures on gravitational waves and the LIGO experiment, to be held at UMBC on Wednesday nights at 7pm from March 28th - April 18th. The lectures will be given by senior LIGO scientist Dr. Tom Carruthers and are given at the level of the "interested amateur". If you are interested in the science behind LIGO, really a ground-breaking optics experiment, and the incredible Nobel-prize winning results recently published by the LIGO collaboration, this is your chance to learn more from one of the people that actually helped to build the detector.
