Offered Bachelor’s or Master’s Theses Topics

Polarisierte Gravitationswellen

The detection of gravitational waves was one of the biggest scientific
breakthroughs of the past decade. Yet, little is known about the
polarization of these waves. In this thesis, the student should learn the
basic theory of gravitional waves in General Relativity drawing on
analogies with electromagnetic waves. Based on these properties, it will
be analyzed which interferometer configurations and which type bineary
black hole/neutron star merger events are optimal for an accurate
measurement of polarization. The present observational status is reviewed.
Using the available data of the advanced Virgo and LIGO detectors, the
student is expected to perform numerical studies of a few binary-BH events
with respect to their polarization signature.

No prior knowledge of general relativity is required. Learning the basics
of the theory is part of the thesis work.
