Details These visits have been conceived with the goal of enriching the Postdoc experience in Göttingen, for the benefit of all Network members whatever their discipline, interest or career stage. This a great opportunity to have personal interactions with fellow researchers, exchange ideas, initiate collaborations or get an overview of research activities across the Göttingen Campus.

Our first visit is to the University’s Institute of Astrophysics, and will kindly be led by Dr Sebastian Schäfer.
You can expect an overview of: astrophysics, telescopes, spectroscopy, solar observation, how to find planets beyond our Solar System and instrumentation projects for the very Large Telescope/European Extremely Large Telescope.

In addition, this will be an opportunity to find out about possible interdisciplinary collaboration, research methods and instruments as follows: observations of the Sun are very closely related to studies of the Earth's atmosphere so there is overlap, eg: Fourier-Transform-Spectroscopy (also used in Biology and Chemistry), lots of fibre optics, laser physics and vacuum technology.
