CASU is involved in survey astronomy with expertise covering ground- and space-based projects ranging from data processing and image analysis techniques through to data curation and access to UK facility data archives.
X-ray astronomy research in Cambridge is carried out by an active X-ray Astronomy group whose research focusses on accretion on to compact objects and the physics of clusters of galaxies.
Lucky Imaging is a remarkably effective technique for delivering near-diffraction-limited imaging on ground-based telescopes.
Typically, the target systems correspond to lensing of z > 0.5 star-forming galaxies by luminous red galaxies and brightest cluster galaxies.
