Technical Section


Astrophysical research places the highest technical demands on scientific instrumentation. Technical Section offers support in the development, construction, production, integration, verification, but also in the maintenance and improvement of predominantly earth-bound focal instruments as well as robotic telescopes. The tasks of the section also include the maintenance of historical instruments.

Technical Section is structured in four subunits. For the realisation of instrumentation projects, employees work together in interdisciplinary teams with complementary competences.

Further information on Technical Section can be found on the non-public intranet.
