Ripples from the Dark Side of the Universe
Approved 1
An Institute of Physics (IOP) lecture for the public, presented by Prof Sir James Hough Associate Director Institute for Gravitational Research.

This talk will review progress in the field of gravitational wave detection from the first days of the aluminium bar detectors to the present time where the laser interferometer detectors Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo have allowed gravitational waves to be detected and are opening up a new field of gravitational multi-messenger astrophysics.  Many experimental challenges had to be overcome and new challenges are presenting themselves as we look to further enhance the performance of ground based detectors and look to lower frequencies with the space based detector LISA.
