Observing the Universe with the Cosmic Microwave Background

Observing the Universe with the Cosmic Microwave Background

The Planck satellite mission has provided a multifrequency detailed view of the Universe at millimeter waves, exploring the cosmic microwave background (CMB) and the relevant foregrounds with an unprecedented combination of sensitivity, angular resolution and frequency coverage. Meanwhile, a number of ground based and balloon-borne experiments are exploring the tiniest details of the CMB (anisotropy, polarization,…

Gravitational Wave Astrophysics

Gravitational Wave Astrophysics

The detection and analysis of the gravitational radiation emitted by diverse astrophysical and cosmological sources promises to open a completely new window to the exploration of the Universe. The developments towards Gravitational Wave Astronomy are currently following different paths. On one hand, second-generation ground-based interferometric detectors [LIGO (USA), VIRGO (Italy-EGO), and KAGRA (Japan)] in the high-frequency…

Gravitation, Astrophysics, and Cosmology

Gravitation, Astrophysics, and Cosmology

Research on Gravitation, Astrophysics, and Cosmology in Argentina and Brazil has reached a substantial degree of development. We believe, however, that the interaction between groups of both countries working in these areas is still not strong enough to undertake long-term, successful joint research programs. It was with the goal of stimulating collaboration that we started…

11° IBWS INTEGRAL/BART Workshop

11° IBWS INTEGRAL/BART Workshop

IBWS 2014 is 11th in the series of successful workshops dedicated to high energy astrophysics and supporting ground-based experiments (e.g. robotic telescopes). The workshop will be held in Karlovy Vary (Carlsbad),  Czech Republic, April 22 – 25 2014. The IBWS is expected to start with welcome cocktail in the evening, April 22, the scientific sessions will start in the morning, April 23. The workshop…

Neutrons method to test dark energy theories by sensitive measurements of gravity at small scales

Non sempre occorre un acceleratore di particelle per fare esperimenti di fisica fondamentale. I primi risultati di un esperimento a bassa energia sulla gravità newtoniana, spinto fino ad un limite più piccolo di cinque ordini di grandezza, stringono il cerchio sulle proprietà potenziali che forze e particelle potrebbero assumere al di là di questo limite…
