Research Projects

The AIP is involved in a variety of research projects, a selection of these projects is presented here. You can find further projects on the project pages of the individual research sections.

The One Thousand and One Magellanic Clouds Fields Survey will use 4MOST to measure the kinematics and elemental abundances of many different stellar populations that sample the history of formation and evolution of the Magellanic Clouds.

The Galaxy Mapper Instrument at Calar Alto (GAMAICA) is a proposed integral field spectrograph for the 3.5 m telescope of the Centro Astronomico Hispano-Aleman (CAHA) on Calar Alto.

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.

XMM-Newton: a pathfinder for future multiwavelength and multi-messenger observations with ATHENA

A major X-ray facility surveying the whole sky

4-meter Multi Object Spectroscopic Telescope

The VISTA survey of the Magellanic Clouds system is the most sensitive high-spatial-resolution survey of the Magellanic Clouds in the near-infrared to date.

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 the 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.
