Infrared Interferometry of dust and gas disks surrounding young stars

Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy Kreplin, Alexander; Weigelt, Gerd; Grinin, Vladimir; Hofmann, Karl-Heinz; Schertl, Dieter; Tambovtseva, Larisa
Infrared interferometry with three or more telescopes can provide an angular resolution that is as high as the theoretical resolution of a telescope with a mirror diameter of 130m. It is even possible to perform infrared interferometric measurements with both high angular resolution and high spectral resolution simultaneously. This method enables us to obtain unique insights into the circumstellar disks of young stars and makes studies of the accretion process possible. Measurements of the young stars KK Oph und MWC 297 are presented. more
The Square Kilometre Array will be the most ambitious radio telescope ever planned. The scientific capabilities and its technological challenges will open up new windows of discovery space and will place the SKA as one of the cornerstones in the exploration of the Universe’s most fundamental questions. The upcoming year 2014 will be the most influential one in the SKA design process. Employees from the German SKA working group and the MPS are involved in various design studies in order to create the blueprint of this super science machine of the next 50 years. more
