Abstract
A method of detecting of short scalar gravitational waves with a wavelength of λ ~ 0.5 μm is proposed, in contrast to LIGO Project, aimed at detecting of long quadrupole gravitational waves (λ ~ 43 ÷ 10000 km). The conduction electrons in a metal are proposed to use as gravitational receiving antennas instead of massive pendulums. It is shown that using a Large Scale metal diffraction grating you can convert the mechanical vibrations of the conduction electrons of metal into a plane electromagnetic wave propagating along the normal to the grating. It is shown that when the amplitude of the scalar gravitational wave in a source (in quasar at the center of our galaxy) is greater than Ago ≈ 5 1020cm/s2, you can register it with the help of a large optical telescope equipped with the proposed diffraction grating. It is shown that the special theory of relativity allows the amplitude of the scalar gravitational waves in this source by 5 orders of magnitude greater than the above-mentioned minimum value.
