Working Group Prof. Klaus Werner - Section Astronomy
Our team works experimentally in the field of UV astronomy, as well as theoretically in the field of quantitative spectral analyses of stellar spectra (white dwarfs, neutron stars, etc.) and spectra of accretion disks around compact stellar remnants. For spectral analyses we are utilizing ground- and space-based observatories in a wide wavelength range, from the infrared to the X-ray region of the electromagnetic spectrum.
