ASTERoseismic Investigations with SONG and Kepler
ID: 267864
Start date: 2011-04-01, End date: 2016-03-31
The project aims at a breakthrough in our understanding of stellar evolution, by combining advanced observations of stellar oscillations with state-of-the-art modelling of stars. This will largely be based on very extensive and precise data on stellar oscillations from the NA...

The first Galaxies
[PROJECT] EGGS - The first Galaxies
ID: 278202
Start date: 2011-11-01, End date: 2016-10-31
The goal of this project is to discover the first galaxies that formed after the Big Bang. The astrophysics of galaxy formation is deeply fascinating. From tiny density fluctuations of quantum mechanical nature believed to have formed during an inflationary period a tiny frac...

Predicting the arsenic content in groundwater of the floodplains in SE Asia
ID: 338972
Start date: 2014-01-01, End date: 2018-03-31
More than 100 million people living on the floodplains of the Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna, Mekong and Red River, all draining the Himalayas, are consuming arsenic contaminated water. Providing safe drinking water for these people requires a quantitative understanding of the pro...

Spectroscopy of Trapped Antihydrogen
ID: 321178
Start date: 2013-05-01, End date: 2018-12-31
Antihydrogen is the only stable, neutral antimatter system available for laboratory study. Recently, the ALPHA Collaboration at CERN has succeeded in synthesizing and trapping antihydrogen atoms, storing them for up to 1000 s, and performing the first resonant spectroscopy, u...

All-solid-state quantum electrodynamics in photonic crystals
ID: 258292
Start date: 2010-12-01, End date: 2015-11-30
In quantum electrodynamics a range of fundamental processes are driven by omnipresent vacuum fluctuations. Photonic crystals can control vacuum fluctuations and thereby the fundamental interaction between light and matter. We will conduct experiments on quantum dots in photon...

Operator Algebras, Free Probability, and Groups
ID: 247321
Start date: 2010-01-01, End date: 2014-12-31
Starting with Voiculescu's pioneering work on free probability from 1983, there has for more than 25 years been a strong development in mathematical research on the interrelations between operator algebra theory, probability theory and group theory. The PI has over the l...
