The Bartos Group’s research focuses on multi-messenger astrophysics: the exploration of the Universe through combining information from a multitude of cosmic messengers, including gravitational waves, electromagnetic radiation, neutrinos, and atomic nuclei. Each of these cosmic messengers is produced by distinct processes at its origin, and thus carries information about different mechanisms within its source. The messengers also differ widely in how they carry this information to the astronomer: for example, gravitational waves and neutrinos can pass through matter and intergalactic magnetic fields, providing an unobstructed view of the Universe at all wavelengths. Combining observations of different messengers will therefore let us see more and look further. Of particular interest are extreme cosmic events related to the formation and evolution of black holes and neutron stars.

The Bartos Group is involved with research using the LIGO gravitational-wave observatory, the IceCube neutrino observatory, the future LISA gravitational-wave satellite, the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array radio observatory, the Fermi and Neil Gehrels Swift gamma-ray burst satellites, and others.
