The group of Prof. Klaus Werner works experimentally in the field of ultraviolet (UV) astronomy as well as theoretically in the field of quantitative spectral analysis of stellar spectra and spectra of accretion disks around compact stellar remnants.
The group works on the development of photon counting, imaging UV detectors for future space missions.
For spectral analyses data of ground- and space-based observatories is used, which cover a wide wavelength range from the infrared to the X-ray region of the electromagnetic spectrum.
In addition to bachelor and master projects, we offer student assistant jobs to contribute to ongoing research projects.
In the field of UV-detector development the following topics are addressed:
Projects in the field of quantitative spectral analysis encompass the following topics:
