dc.description.abstract The existence of gravitational radiation is a prediction of Einstein's general theory of relativity. Gravitational waves are perturbations in the curvature of spacetime caused by accelerated masses. Since the 1960s gravitational wave detectors have been built and constantly improved. The present-day generation of resonant mass antennas and laser interferometers has reached the necessary sensitivity to detect gravitational waves from sources in the Milky Way. Within a few years, the next generation of detectors will open the field of gravitational wave astronomy. © IOP Publishing Ltd and Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft. eng
