New Era of Optical Interferometric Observations: Supermassive Black Holes in AGNs
Prof. Jian-Min Wang
IHEP, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, China
Date & Time :
The successful observations of near-IR interferometry by the European Southern Observatory opened a new era of high-resolution astronomy in the optical/near-IR. This talk will introduce how to perform high-precision measurement of black hole masses, cosmological distances, the history of the expanding universe, and nano-Hz gravitational waves from supermassive binary black holes in the era of optical/near-IR interferometry.
About Speaker :
