Article: Predicted diffuse flux of ultra-high energy photons in the galactic plane; its implications for the search for super-heavy dark matter

Upper limits on diffuse photon fluxes for several energy thresholds, and expected fluxes from UHECRs interactions with the gas distribution in the Galaxy (grey dashed and blue dashed-dotted lines), as…

Search for Gravitational Waves Associated with Gamma-Ray Bursts Detected by Fermi and Swift During the LIGO-Virgo Run O3b

We search for gravitational-wave signals associated with gamma-ray bursts detected by the Fermi and Swift satellites during the second half of the third observing run of Advanced LIGO and Advanced…

GWTC-3: Compact Binary Coalescences Observed by LIGO and Virgo During the Second Part of the Third Observing Run

The LIGO and Virgo detectors have observed 35 new gravitational-wave events, between November 2019 and March 2020, during the second half of the third observing run (O3b). The total number…
