Welcome to Astronomy Research Group ITB

Profile

Astronomy Research Group is divided into three sub-families, namely Galaxies and Cosmology, Physics stars, and the solar system. Some research themes sub-KK Galaxies and Cosmology includes; studies of the structure and dynamics of galaxies, distribution, and evolution of galaxies and clusters of galaxies, active galaxies (quasars), the search for dark matter, cosmology theoretical and observational cosmology.

Research activities Sub-Physics KK Star generally divided into three main themes, namely: a theoretical study that includes numerical modeling of stellar structure and atmosphere, synthesis of light and the spectrum of the various classes of variable stars (stars near the double, double star pulsation and accretion disc); observational studies that include variable star photometry and spectroscopy, visual double star orbit calculation and polarimetry Herbig Ae; Development of data acquisition and processing system of CCD-based astronomical instrumentation, image and data processing, data storage, and digital star spectrum classification automatically.

Research activity sub-KK solar system are: the study of solar physics (motion sunspot, high-energy particles and the relation of solar activity on the Earth), the study of asteroids close to Earth, dynamics and evolution of asteroids, the physics of the planets in the solar system (atmosphere of the planet Mars and the satellite Titan’s atmosphere) and the study of planets outside the solar system.
