Organisation profile

Head of division Allan Hornstrup

The Division for Astrophysics and Astomospheric Physics studies physical processes in stars, galaxies, galaxy clusters and the universe as a whole, as well as doing research and development of instrumentation that can be used to observe these objects. We also study our atmosphere, where Earth meets space, and the complex interactions that occur there.

 Research is concentrated in a handful of main areas:

  •  Large-scale structure of the universe, including  the creation of galaxies and galaxy clusters.     
  • Physical conditions and processes in and around  neutron stars and black holes.    
  • Mapping the Cosmic Microwave Background to understand the Big Bang and early evolution of the Universe
  • Electrical Discharges in the Upper Atmosphere
  • Cosmic rays and their effect on the Earth's weather and climate
  • Space weather and monitoring solar activity
  • Technological development of x-ray and gamma-ray detectors and instruments, as well as mechanical structures for use in space-based observatories.
