Continuous gravitational waves produced by spinning neutron stars are another avenue for LIGO to listen to the Universe.
Flux tubes in the superfluid-superconductor mixture inside of neutron stars may form bundles, or merge into larger, multi-quantum flux tubes.
What are the implications of the historic detection of binary neutron star merger GW170817 for the gravitational wave stochastic background?
In today’s paper, the authors find that the ringdown frequency and damping time cannot be measured with arbitrary precision, no matter how loud the signal.
Inside neutron stars we find exotic phases of matter called “nuclear pasta”.
