The research of Prof. Dr. D. Breitschwerdt at the Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics focuses on analytical and numerical modelling of star forming galaxies, with particular emphasis on the evolution of the interstellar and intergalactic medium. A further field of research is high energy astrophysics in general, including the acceleration and propagation of high energy particles and the interpretation of observations.
The research interests of Prof. Dr. Rauer and her group range from the observation and theoretical modelling of extrasolar planetary systems to the physics of comets within our solar system.
The group led by Prof. Dr. W.-C. Müller investigates the nonlinear dynamics of physical phenomena, such as plasma turbulence and magnetic reconnection, which are of fundamental importance in astro- and plasmaphysics.
Focus of the work of Prof. Dr. R. Wolf lies on the investigation of high-temperature plasma at the stellarator experiment Wendelstein 7-X in Greifswald. First measurement campaigns are expected in 2015. For the preparation of these experiments, techniques for heating the plasma and measurement methods for a large variety of plasma parameters are developed.
An overview of the research activities of the former group of Prof. Dr. E. Sedlmayr can be found here.
