In this research group, we study various space geodetic and astronomical observing techniques covering different wavelengths: from very long baseline inteferometry (VLBI) and radar, to satellite laser ranging (SLR) and passive optical observations. In addition, the remote sensing techniques are complemented by laboratory measurements. Our research topics range from fundamental electromagnetic scattering processes and different inverse problems for both natural and artificial space objects, to quasar source structure.
