Fundamental questions about the Universe, galaxies, stars, and planets are explored. Research topics include stellar astrophysics, exoplanets and planetary science, gamma-ray astronomy, galactic and extragalactic astronomy. The Department is active in time-domain astrophysics.
The Department’s membership in the SARA consortium provides real time student access to 1 meter class optical telescopes in Arizona, Chile, and the Canary islands. Locally, the department has access to facilities at the Mt. Cuba Observatory, including a 0.6m imaging telescope and a new 1.3m state of the art research telescope with both imaging and spectroscopic capabilities. UD astronomers are actively participating in the construction, development, and operation of the Vera C. Rubin Observatory, the flagship ground based US observatory of the next decade. The Vera Rubin Observatory’s Legacy Survey of Space and Time will scan large regions of the sky over 10 years, revolutionizing our understanding of the dynamic universe. UD faculty are also involved with future instruments such as the Cherenkov Telescope Array Observatory, the Twinkle Space Telescope, and the Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope.
Research at Delaware also makes use of existing world-class facilities such as the Hubble Space Telescope , the Chandra X-ray Observatory, the James Webb Space Telescope, the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite, and VERITAS.
