High Energy Astrophysics


Astrophysics, the study of the universe and the laws that govern physical processes in it, has experienced many extraordinary developments in recent decades. Technological advances in instrumentation, detectors, and computing for both ground-based and orbiting observatories have led to a wealth of discoveries at wavelengths ranging from low energy radio waves to very high energy gamma-rays.

Purdue's high energy astrophysics group is involved in several major projects that seek to push the boundaries of our understanding of the most energetic processes in the known Universe.  Recent advances in technology allow for many possibilities for observational and theoretical research. This website's goal is to give prospective students and fellow scientists the opportunity to explore, learn, and keep up to date with the most current astrophysical research at Purdue University
