Results from all-sky search in LIGO O2 data published

March 09, 2021

The results of our all-sky search for continuous gravitational waves in public data from LIGO's second observing run (O2) have now been published in The Astrophysical Journal. The publication describes the search with the best sensitivity ever achieved by such an all-sky survey up to 500 Hz.

The latest Einstein@Home discovery

October 22, 2020

I'm proud to announce the latest Einstein@Home discovery, which was published today in Astrophysical Journal Letters.  This identifies a "black-widow" pulsar in data from the Large Area Telescope on board the Fermi satellite.  Our discovery resolves the nature of a mysterious source, first seen two decades ago by the EGRET satellite.
