The Tumultuous Lives of Galaxy Halos
01/01/2017 - 31/12/2022

Purpose and Aim: All of galaxy formation and evolution – and therefore our understanding of the origin of objects like the Milky Way – is driven by the astrophysics of baryonic material that occurs in the immediate vicinity of galaxies. This ‘circumga...

Preparatory Phase for the European Solar Telescope
01/04/2017 - 31/03/2021

The European Solar Telescope (EST) will be a revolutionary Research Infrastructure that will play a major role in answering key questions in modern Solar Physics. This 4-meter class solar telescope, to be located in the Canary Islands, will provide solar physicists with the mo...

The young star cluster's perspective of star formation; reconciling our understanding of star formation from small to large scales
01/01/2017 - 31/12/2020

This program offers to calibrate intermediate scale tracers that can provide us with global understanding of star formation (SF) and galaxy evolution. These tracers are the young star clusters (YSCs). YSCs, formed by millions of stars gravitationally bound together, are fundam...

"Let there be light" - the era of the first galaxies
01/01/2017 - 31/12/2020

The current frontier of observational cosmology is the Epoch of
Reionization, the period when the first stars and galaxies formed and
ionizing light escaped into the intergalactic medium, gradually ionizing
and heating the entire Universe. This period is of fundamental

Zwicky Transient Facility - A new window to the transient universe
01/01/2014 - 31/12/2018
English abstractSupernovae (SNe) are some of the most dramatic events in the universe - these stellar explosions briefly outshine entire galaxies. Type Ia SNe led to the discovery of dark energy. For the core-collap...

Linnaeus grant: The CosmoParticle Collaboration (CPC)
01/07/2008 - 30/06/2018
The CosmoParticle Collaboration (CPC) aims at using the combined skills of particle physicists, astrophysicists and cosmologists to adress fundamental questions concerning dark matter, dark energy and extreme objects in the universe. The current collaboration consists of 23 peopl...

Getting Ready for EST
01/06/2015 - 31/05/2018

The present project is intended to take the European Solar Telescope (EST) to the next level of development by undertaking crucial activities to improve the performance of current state-of-the-art instrumentation. Legal, industrial and socio-economic issues will also be addres...

Cosmic Reionization: the dawn of galaxies
01/02/2013 - 31/12/2017
Stjärnor som solen finns i galaxer som består av flera 100 miljarder stjärnor. Man skulle kunna tro att allt material i universum finns i såna galaxer, men det visas sig att det finns mer material mellan galaxerna än i dem. Materialet mellan galaxerna k...

Ionizing Galaxies and their Cosmic History
01/08/2013 - 31/12/2017
Galaxer är för närvarande observerbara under 13 av de 13.5 miljarder år som universum har existerat. Genom observationer av dem vid olika epoker har vi kunnat mäta hur synlig materia har utvecklats under hela universums livscykel. Genom att titta på...
