ET is a “design study” supported by the European Commission under the Framework Programme 7 (FP7) It is a ~3 years project supported by EC with about 3 M€ It is started in May 2008 and will end in 2011 CSNII workshop - April, 06-07, 2009 1 http://www.et-gw.eu/

CSNII workshop - April, 06-07, 2009 8 Squeezed Light Non-Gaussian beams High power laser (1064nm, 1550nm)
Since GW detection is expected to occur in the advanced detectors, the ET science targets are mainly addressed to observational aspects: Astrophysics: Measure in great detail the physical parameters of the stellar bodies composing the binary systems NS-NS, NS-BH, BH-BH Constrain the Equation of State of NS through the measurement of the merging phase of BNS of the NS stellar modes of the gravitational continuous wave emitted by a pulsar NS Contribute to solve the GRB enigma Relativity Compare the numerical relativity model describing the coalescence of intermediate mass black holes Cosmology Measure few cosmological parameters using the GW signal from BNS emitting also an e.m. signal (like GRB) Probe the first instant of the universe and its evolution through the measurement of the GW stochastic background Astro-particle: Contribute to the measure the neutrino mass 9
The ET science team is linking the GW community in Europe (and beyond) CSNII workshop - April, 06-07, 2009 10 More than 110 physicists participated at the first ET general meeting (Nov.2008)
ET is inserted in the evolution scheme of the GW detectors in the world CSNII workshop - April, 06-07, 2009 11´06´07´08´09´10´11´12´13´14´15´16´17´18´19´20´21´22Virgo GEO LIGO LISA E.T.
