Gravitational waves produced by first order phase transitions


I will discuss phase transitions at the TeV scale, in particular the  electroweak one (in extensions of the standard model). I will review the current status of how gravitational waves are generated during the phase transition, and show how the resulting gravitational wave signal  can be obtained from key properties of the transition. Finally, I will  discuss detection prospects at future interferometers, such as LISA.
