DIANA Project

DIANA is an European Framework Seven (FP7) project, SPACE-2011 collaboration, project no 284405, which conducts a systematic collection and coherent analysis of observational data from the birth-places of extrasolar planets, the so-called protoplanetary discs. DIANA stands for DIscANAlysis.

SAFARI/SPICA Project

SPICA is a joint European-Japanese project under phase-A study at ESA: an infrared space observatory with a large, cryogenically cooled telescope. One of the instruments on board is SAFARI, a far-IR spectrometer providing instantaneously wavelength coverage of the 34 to 230 micron domain. One of the core objectives of this mission is to trace the gas, dust and ice evolution in planetary systems.

Identifying Galaxy Mergers in Observations and Simulations with Deep Learning

10
May, 2019

Mergers are an important aspect of galaxy formation and evolution. We aim to test whether deep learning techniques can be used to reproduce visual classification of observations, physical classification of simulations and highlight any differences between these two classifications. With one of ...

The Data Processing Pipeline for the Herschel-HIFI Instrument

10
May, 2019

The HIFI data processing pipeline was developed to systematically process diagnostic, calibration and astronomical observations taken with the HIFI science instrumentas part of the Herschel mission. The HIFI pipeline processed data from all HIFI observing modes within the Herschel automated pro...

Probing the cold magnetized Universe with SPICA-POL (B-BOP)

09
May, 2019

SPICA, the cryogenic infrared space telescope recently pre-selected for a `Phase A' concept study as one of the three remaining candidates for ESA's fifth medium class (M5) mission, is foreseen to include a far-infrared polarimetric imager (SPICA-POL, now called B-BOP), which would offer a uniq...
