PATT Travel Grant for observational astrophysics at QUB: 2018 - 2020

Lead Research Organisation: Queen's University of Belfast
Department Name: Sch of Mathematics and Physics


Our proposal seeks to renew the PATT Linked Grant at Queen's University Belfast. This award will cover our travel and subsistence costs to both STFC and non-STFC observing facilities. The major topics of observational astrophysics research to be covered by the PATT Linked Grant include:

- investigations of supernovae and the end stages of stellar evolution;

- high temporal, spatial and spectral resolution observations of the solar atmosphere and those of other cool stars;

- studies of solar system bodies, including comets and asteroids;

- astrochemistry, including that of interstellar and circumstellar clouds;

- detection and characterisation of exoplanets.
