Gideon Koekoek, PhD
associate professor of theoretical physics

The Einstein Telescope is the next generation gravitational wave detector, slated to go into operation in 2035, potentially in South-Limburg. It will yield rapid and unprecedented measurements to the edges of the visible universe. In this talk, we will discuss gravitational waves, the working of the Einstein Telescope, and South-Limburg’s role in this revolutionary machine.
