Research projects

Solar Orbiter (SolO) is an ESA space probe dedicated to the study of the Sun and helisophere.

PEPSI during daytime: disk-unresolved solar light is fed to the spectrograph from a small Sun-as-a-star telescope. The upgrade SDI-POL will feed polarised light via two fibers to the spectrograph.

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