Astrophysics Laboratory

Facility/equipment: Research Laboratory

Equipments Details

Description

The Laboratory of Astrophysics comprises the astronomical telescopes, the space instrument laboratory and the scattering research laboratory. The telescopes are housed on the Kumpula Campus, the observatory on Tähtitorninmäki in Southern Helsinki and in the Metsähovi Observatory in Kirkkonummi, and are mainly used for teaching. The space instrument laboratory carries out scientific and technological research in the construction, testing and characterisation of instrument electronics and sensors related to space equipment projects. The scattering laboratory conducts light backscattering measurements from fine particle media and spectroscopy of meteorite materials in the visible light and infrared wavelength range (350–3200 nm).
