High-Energy Astrophysics (Prof. Funk)


The research focus of our chair is high-energy astrophysics using gamma rays and other messengers. Here we are contributing to international experiments, such as the Fermi-LAT (Fermi Large Area Telescope) onboard NASA’s Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope satellite, and the Cherenkov-Telescopes H.E.S.S. (High Energy Stereoscopic System) and CTA (Cherenkov Telescope Array). Our focus is on the analysis of experimental data and the development of new detector components.
