Welcome to the AURIGA detector

The AURIGA project aims at detecting gravitational waves impinging on the Earth from the Universe. The detector is based on a very low losses ultracryogenic mechanical oscillator: when a burst of gravitational waves hits and excites the oscillator, this will vibrate for a time span much longer than the duration of the burst (typically 1msec), thus allowing the extraction of the signal from the detector noise.

AURIGA is a INFN experiment at LNL.
