Workgroup of Prof. Dr. Lucas Labadie
Our research focuses on the observational astrophysics and astronomical instrumentation, mainly in the field of planet and star formation and sub-stellar objects. One objective is to develop and improve novel astronomical techniques, in particular using interferometers and large telescopes, in order to explore at high angular resolution the close environment of young stars and nearby main sequence stars. This observational information provides us with direct evidence on how planetary systems in the making are structured and evolve. We are more particarly involved in the developement or exploitation of instrumentation at the VLT/VLTI and at the ELT with the METIS project.
