Spontaneous scalarization is a scenario in some scalar-tensor theories of gravity where non-perturbative (order-of-unity strength) scalar fields can develop near neutron stars. I will explain the basics of spontaneous scalarization and how we evolve spacetimes in this theory using numerical relativity techniques. I will describe the scalar-tensor theory parameter space that allows large deviations from GR, and speculate on some merger cases where the gravitational signal can be analyzed to identify such deviations.
