The stellar astrophysics group of the AIU Jena mainly works on the physics of compact objects (i.e. neutron stars and substellar objects like brown dwarfs and planets)
and addresses three general fields of research:

  • The search for substellar companions with direct imaging, astrometry and transit methods
  • Formation of low- and high-mass stars
  • Investigation of isolated, nearby neutron stars

On the linked pages above you will find a more detailed introduction to the reasearch fields mentioned above as well as important past and recent publications on the matter.
