The research lines of BiCoQ





The objective of GRAF (GRAvitation global Fit) is the development of new models and analysis techniques for
high-precision measurements of
gravitational waves

The objective of BAUSCIA (Bulk Acoustic Wave Sensors for High-frequency Antennas) is the development of sensors to extend the diagnostic power in the dark sector with gravitational antennas of high frequency (>1 MHz)

The objective of ARMONIA (Aspetti Reconditi della Materia Oscura: Nuove Indagini Astrofisiche, that is "The secrets of dark matter: new astrophysical studies") is the development of new techniques to characterise the nature of dark matter and dark energy through the  Cosmic Birefringence
of the CMB and the structural properties of filaments and dark galaxies

The objective of CADMO (CAndidati Dark Matter Oltre paradigma WIMP, that is "Dark Matter candidates beyond the WIMP paradigm") is the development of new devices for detection of photons in the extreme ultraviolet to search for dark matter candidates beyond the WIMP paradigm
