Research focus

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.

Keywords:

Quantitative spectroscopy of (pre-) white dwarfs and supersoft X-ray sources

White dwarfs and central stars of planetary nebulae

Supersoft X-ray sources and novae

Observation of stellar spectra

Stellar atmospheres and spectral modeling

German Astrophysical Virtual Observatory (GAVO)

Thermal emission from neutron stars

Spectra from accretion disks of compact stellar remnants

Cataclysmic Variables and Symbiotic Stars

Single white dwarfs

Low-mass X-ray binaries (LMXBs)

Supernova-fallback disks
