Saulson Publishes Second Edition of Textbook on Gravitational Wave Detection Device

Posted on: Feb. 27, 2017

When a team of scientists confirmed Einstein’s theory about the existence of gravitational waves, including the important work of Syracuse University’s own physicists, there was little doubt that it would be the kind of discovery documented in scholarly textbooks. Now one of the researchers, a faculty member in the College of Arts and Sciences, has done just that. Peter Saulson, the Martin A. Pomerantz ’37 Professor of Physics, has produced a second edition of his textbook about the device that helped in wave detection: “Fundamentals of Interferometric Gravitational Wave Detectors.” More details on SU News
