Abstract

FRBs are the only known sources of extragalactic coherent radiation, that show interference phenomena after traveling over cosmological distances. The interferometric probe allows equivalent strain measurements of $h\sim 10^{-26}$, opening new windows for gravitational wave detection, dark matter properties, and emission physics. I describe new directions, theoretical and observational tools, and current and future experiments.
