Research projects

4MIDABLE-LR will provide the largest spectroscopic follow-up of Gaia, providing a detailed 3D chrono-chemokinematical  map of stellar disk and bar-bulge of the Milky Way.

PUNCH4NFDI is the NFDI consortium of particle, astro-, astroparticle, hadron and nuclear physics, representing about 9.000 scientists with a Ph.D. in Germany, from universities, the Max Planck society, the Leibniz Association, and the Helmholtz Association. PUNCH physics addresses the fundamental constituents of matter and their interactions, as well as their role for the development of the largest structures in the universe - stars and galaxies.

The Research Data Management Organiser is Open Source software used by a wide spread community.

1.5-m optical solar telescope on Tenerife. The telescope is able to resolve 70 km on the Sun.

4-meter Multi Object Spectroscopic Telescope

Digitisation of photographic and spectroscopic plates made available in a database via a web interface.

A Python framework for the publication of scientific databases developed mostly by the E-Science and Supercomputing section of AIP.

German Astrophysical Virtual Observatory. GAVO is the contribution for building a "Virtual Observatory" platform in Germany

The structured database contains data from high-resolution cosmological simulations accessible via a webinterface and direct SQL queries.

Debian as a system that fits the requirements of both professional and hobby astronomers

Low-Frequency Array: A European radio telescope with innovative computer and network infrastructure

The integral-field spectrograph at the European Very Large Telescope in Chile.

By measuring precise positions and motions, the ESA satellite Gaia creates the most accurate map of the Milky Way to answer questions about origin and evolution of our galaxy.

The RAdial Velocity Experiment was a survey to measure the radial velocities, metallicities and abundance ratios for nearly half a million stars. The data are available via the project website.

The Sloan Digital Sky Survey has created the detailed images of 1/3 of the sky in the visible wavelength range as well as three-dimensional maps of the Universe and spectra for more than three million astronomical objects.
