ET-LCGT Telescopes: Exchange of Scientists

Objective

A new way to investigate the Universe will be possible when the new generation of gravitational wave telescopes becomes operative. First, the advanced detectors, then the 3rd generation observatories will allow to detect the gravitational wave signal emitted in catastrophic event in the Universe. The Large-scale Cryogenic Gravitational wave Telescope (LCGT, now named KAGRA) in Japan and the Einstein gravitational-wave Telescope in Europe will adopt new technologies (in cryogenics, mechanics and optics) that necessitate an intense R&D activity and a fully collaborative exchange of know-how between Europe and Japan. The aim of the ELiTES project is to furnish the initial kick-off to this exchange programme.
