Gravitational Wave Explorers Group

Our Universe is still, mostly, a mystery, with 95% of its content made of unknown dark energy and dark matter. The Gravitational Wave Explorers group exploits the recently discovered gravitational waves – ripples in space and time produced by extreme gravitational systems like colliding black holes - to open unique opportunities to measure the Universe’s expansion in uncharted regions, map the unseen dark matter and test Einstein's gravity.

We are memebers of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration and the LISA Consortium.

The team is funded by the VILLUM Young Investigator Grant no. 53101 (VILLUM Fonden).

The GWexplorers team is proud to use and fund the Tycho supercomputer.
