Radiative Transfer Simulations Group
Our research revolves around the theoretical description of atmospheres along with their corresponding radiation fields. In order to compute both with increasing level of detail and resolution, we are developing the PHOENIX code.
Scientists who would like to use our models can download individual models or full grids either from our local archive or from our collaborators in Göttingen. Those with a worthwhile idea that requires more specialized data should feel free contact us, of course.
Students interested working with us can expect tasks heavily focused on software engineering, algorithm development, data mining, and systematic comparison between models and observations. Earlier programming experience is recommended as is a knack for delving slightly too deep into the underlying theory.
