Astrophysical Studies at ISR
Researchers at the Institute for Scientific Research study the infrared properties of evolved stars and star-forming regions in the Milky Way and nearby galaxies, such as the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds. We are also engaged in improving the spectroscopic and photometric reliabilty of the stellar spectra that are used for to calibrate space- and ground-based telescopes.
