Gravitational-wave observations can be used to test the Kerr nature of black holes through “gravitational spectroscopy,” i.e. the measurement of multiple quasinormal mode frequencies from the remnant of a binary black hole merger. They can also be used to reveal (or rule out) the existence of light bosons, that could be a component of dark matter and produce detectable signals through superradiant instabilities. I will discuss the prospects for black hole spectroscopy and dark matter searches with gravitational wave interferometers on Earth and in space.
