Researchers

The Astronomy Department at Indiana University maintains a machine shop, an electronics shop, and two well-equipped optics labs to support the design and construction of instrumentation for astronomy and for high-energy astrophysics.

  • Mufson and students develop equipment for use with the MINOS and NOvA experiments at Fermilab, and are developing a light detection system in liquid argon for the Long Baseline Neutrino Experiement at Fermilab.

  • Pilachowski is building a fiber-fed, high dispersion echelle spectrograph for use at the 3.5-m WIYN telescope (see FHiRE).
