Abstract:

After their discovery in 2007, Fast Radio Bursts are fast developing into a rich area for discovery. In this talk we will explore together the possibilities for using these bright rapid bursts of radio light as probes of cosmology and even fundamental physics. More broadly, we will explore the potential for physics discovery using forthcoming radio telescope array experiments and intensity mapping.
