SHAO Astrophysics Colloquium

Title: Stochastic Gravitational Wave Background
Speaker: Prof. Bin Hu (Beijing Normal University;

Time: 3 pm, May 23 (Thursday)

Location: Lecture Hall, 3rd floor

Abstract: Stochastic Gravitational Wave Background is a promising signal which are expected to be discovered in the near future. The detection method is mainly via the Pulsar Timing Array. In this talk, I will introduce the physical origin, detection method as well as theoretical modelling of this signal. 


The Astrophysics division is the main group engaged in astrophysical research at Shanghai Astronomical Observatory. Research areas include active galactic nuclei and high energy astrophysics, galaxy formation and evolution, cosmology and large scale structure, star clusters and the structure of the Milk Way, star formation, and planetary astrophysics. There are now 45 faculty members, 16 postdocs, and 65 graduate students in the division.

The Astrophysics division maintains close partnerships with many astronomical research institutes, including the joint Key laboratory of research in galaxies and cosmology of CAS with University of Science and Technology of China, the joint astrophysics center with Xiamen University. Members of the astrophysics division also participate in many international and domestic astronomical projects, including LAMOST, HXMT, FAST, the Sloan Digital Sky Survey IV, TMT, LSST, etc.
