Title: Possible electromagnetic counterparts of gravitational waves
Speaker: Prof. Zhang Bing (Nevada University)
Moderator: Prof. Zhang Shuangnan
Time: 09:30 AM, July 4
Place: Room C305, IHEP Main Building
This report will discuss various possible electromagnetic counterparts of gravitational wave sources due to NS-BH, NS-NS, and BH-BH mergers. The list includes a short-duration gamma-ray burst and its afterglow, an r-process-powered “macro-/kilo-/merger-novae” and its subsequent interaction with the ambient medium, an X-ray transient powered by a millisecond magnetar formed during a NS-NS merger, and (speculatively) a fast radio burst.
