## The isotropic search for and the analysis of the astrophysical stochastic background of gravitational waves. University of Antwerp

## Unlocking the Dark Universe with Gravitational Wave Observations: from Quantum Optics to Quantum Gravity Ghent University

The spectacular first direct detections of gravitational waves (GW) have opened up hitherto unexplored and extreme regions of the universe. To realize the rich discovery potential of GWs with laser interferometry will require new collaborations and initiatives at the interface of physics and engineering. With this Declaration of Intent our research groups join forces to put forward a coherent research program building on our strengths and ...

## Unlocking the Dark Universe with Gravitational Wave Observations: from Quantum Optics to Quantum Gravity Vrije Universiteit Brussel

## Theoretical and phenomenological aspects of gravitational wave physics KU Leuven

The recent direct detection of gravitational waves offer a whole new window to observe and study the universe. Predicted by general relativity, these ripples in the fabric of spacetime are generated by the most powerful astrophysical events of the cosmos. Investigating theoretical and phenomenological aspects of gravitational wave physics could provide the opportunity to improve the understanding of the ...

## Development of key components for 3rd generation gravitational wave instrumentation. University of Antwerp

## Extracting fundamental and astrophysics from Gravitational-wave Detection. KU Leuven

This proposal pursues an ambitious yet timely effort on extracting fundamental and astrophysics from gravitational-wave detection, spanning from data analysis to phenomenology related to ground and space-based interferometric detectors. In particular, I proposed to focus on 1) Gravitational Lensing of Gravitational Waves, 2) Probing General Relativity and exotic compact objects, 3) Uncovering the nature of dark matter, and 4) Core-collapse ...

## Cosmology and fundamental physics with gravitational-wave observations Ghent University

The recent discovery of gravitational waves has opened unprecedented avenues to the frontiers of science. This project would focus on the extraction of science results, cosmology and fundamental physics in particular, with observational data from the upcoming observing runs of the LIGO-Virgo-KAGRA detector network. Some of the big questions that this project aims to understand are: (i) How fast is the universe expanding? (ii) Are the ...
