The Stockholm University Physics and Astronomy departments have joined the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope collaboration. These researchers will use the observatory to help them better understand supernovae and to map the structure of the Universe.
The first results have just been released from XENON1T (“Xenon One Ton”), the most sensitive dark matter detection experiment in the world. The XENON collaboration contains scientists from 10 different countries, including a number of Oskar Klein Centre researchers.
Researchers at the Oskar Klein Centre have discovered a strongly lensed Type Ia supernova with multiple gravitational images. They will use this source to measure the Hubble Constant which quantifies the current expansion rate of the Universe.
In September 14, 2015 gravitational waves were detected for the first time. A newly VR-funded collaborative research environment at Stockholm University seeks to simulate and optimize searches for the electromagnetic counterparts to gravitational wave events.
Welcome to the newest members of the Oskar Klein Centre : the KTH Theoretical Particle Physics Group!
Astronomers have caught the explosion of a red supergiant star in its earliest stages yet. The light from supernova SN 2013fs reached the Earth on October 6, 2013, from the galaxy NGC 7610, 150 million light-years away.
