Research scientists working on the on-ground verification of the
Laser Ranging Instrument of the GRACE follow-on space mission.
Iodine spectroscopy setup for the sounding rocket mission JOKARUS,
which was launched in 2017.
Mock-up aluminum cavity for verifying the thermal shielding
We are developing novel inertial sensors based on miniture mechanical oscillators and micro-optical displacement sensors.
In collaboration with partners at the Albert Einstein Institute, we are developing new concepts for intersatellite laser ranging for future geodesy missions.
We contribute to various aspects of the development of the laser-interferometric measurement system for LISA
