Georgia Tech Hosts International VERITAS and CTA-US Collaboration Meetings

School of Physics Assistant Professor Nepomuk Otte hosts astrophysics researchers in the VERITAS (Very Energetic Radiation Imaging Telescope Array System) and CTA (Cherenkov Telescope Array) collaborations. Attendees are coming not only from the U.S. but also from Canada, Ireland, Germany, Italy, and Japan. 

The VERITAS collaboration operates four telescope arrays in southern Arizona. Researchers will discuss recent results obtained with the instruments and where the work is headed. Also to be discussed are some management items.

The CTA-US collaboration is constructing a new type of telescope at the VERITAS site for a future experiment. Researchers will discuss the status of construction and experiment planning.
