Main research topics are

  1. the dense interstellar medium, its structure, physical and chemical conditions, and
  2. astronomical instrumentation for the submm and far-IR spectral range

The following projects are part of the group's effort:

  • Astronomy:
    • structure analysis of the ISM
    • PDR-modelling
    • large scale mapping of Galactic molecular clouds and nearby external galaxies
  • Hardware:
    • Development: heterodyne mixers and receivers
    • HIFI/Herschel: Band 2 mixers and Wide-Band-Spectrometer
    • SOFIA: GREAT and STAR heterodyne instruments
    • Observatories: KOSMA and NANTEN2
  • Software:
    • Observing Software: AOSOBS and kosma_control
    • Heterodyne Instrument Simulator
