On the use of clocks in satellites for the detection of gravitational radiation and oscillations of the sun

  • A. Rosenblum


It is shown that, by using the path dependence of synchronization of clocks in a gravitational field, it is in principle possible not merely to observe bursts of gravitational radiation but also oscillations of the Sun. Estimates are made of the effect of the solar oscillations on the clocks. It is also pointed out that, by making use of the binary pulsar and millisecond pulsars as clocks, it is possible to observe gravitational radiation without interference from the solar oscillation.

Si mostra che, usando la dipendenza del percorso di sincronizzazione degli orologi in un campo gravitazionale, è possibile, in linea di principio, osservare non soltanto impulsi di radiazione gravitazionale ma anche oscillazioni del Sole. Si fanno stime dell'effetto delle oscillazioni solari sugli orologi. Si sottolinea inoltre che facendo uso delle pulsar binarie e delle pulsar a millisecondi come orologi, è possibile osservare radiazioni gravitazionali senza interferenza da parte dell'oscillazione solare.


Показывается, что использование зависимости синхрононизации часов от траектории в гравитационном поле, в принципе, позволяет не только наблюдать вспышки гравитационнного излучения, а также осцилляции Солнца. Оценивается влияние солнечных осцилляций на часы. Отмечаетсь, что использование бинарного пульсара и миллисекундных пульсаров в качестве часов, позволяет наблюдать гравитационное излучение вез интерференции от солнечных осцилляций.
