The Chandra X-ray Observatory will allow us for the first time to study the universe in the X-ray domain (0.1 - 10.0 keV) with a sub-arcseconds spatial resolution (0.5") and with the highest spectral resolution (R=1000 at 1 keV) ever. For a more general introduction to the observatory please visit the genuine Chandra Science public outrage site , The serious Chandra user, however, is advised to utilize documents offered at the Chandra Science User Documents site.

The science & research interest outlined in my Science page focusses primarily on galactic X-ray astronomy (here we consider X-ray sources in galaxies of the local group, i.e LMC or SMC, also as 'galactic'). With Chandra we utilize the HETG and the LETG spectrometers to perform high resolution X-ray spectroscopy on X-ray binaries containing either neutron stars or black holes, on isolated neutron stars and pulasrs, supernova remnants, stars and stellar clusters.
