Personal profile


Dr Denis Martynov started his research in the field of gravitational waves as a graduate student. He developed an automated procedure for bringing the LIGO interferometers to the linear regime. Denis has also helped to improve the sensitivity of the detectors up to the level when the first direct observation of gravitational waves could occur.

Research interests

Denis develops new designs and technologies for future gravitational-wave detectors within the LIGO Scientific Collaboration. He also studies macroscopic quantum optomechanics and searches for axion dark matter within the Quantum Interferometry collaboration.
