Institute of Astronomy

Stellar Radial Velocities and Binary-Star Orbit Determination

This was one of the longest-standing of all the Institute's research projects. The majority of the observations were made on-site with the Coravel radial-velocity instrument at the 36-inch telescope, but use is also made of analogous equipment overseas. The observations are mostly of binary stars.

The work in this area has now ceased.
