题目： Introduction to Hiroshima Astrophysical Science Center's Gravitational Wave Projects
Since LIGO detected GW150914, there has been a revolution in the field of astronomy. Japan has been making a lot of contribution to the understanding of gravitational waves. In the end of 2017, a nation-wide project called "Gravitational wave physics and astronomy: Genesis" has been set up which combines the effort of theories, observations and experiments. As an important collaborating institute, Hiroshima University contributes a lot in the field of high energy and optical observations. In this talk, I will introduce the gravitational wave projects in our group, these include:
1. a CubeSat project which enables fast and accurate localization of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs)
2. KANATA - a 1.5m telescope located at the university'a own observatory. This telescope can move at a speed of 5 deg/s which can respond immediately to GRB alert. Additionally, we have developed a "one-shot" polarimetry(HOWpol) technique to observe the fast changing GRBs. HONIR is our latest development which allows imaging-polarimetry and spectro-polarimetry in the optical and NIR band.
3. HinTORI - a 0.5m imaging telescope in Tibet which is capable of simultaneous three-color(UV and NIR) imaging
2017- now postdoc at Hiroshima University (research topic: X-ray clusters of galaxies)
2016 - 2017 postdoc at Rikkyo University (research topic: gamma-ray modeling of Cygnus X-3 )
2012 - 2016 PhD candidate of the H.E.S.S. collaboration at the Max Planck Institute fur Kernphysik
