Diploma thesis at MPE available !


GRAVITY is being built by four institutes that have agreed to collaborate closely for this purpose. A board of directors oversees the collaboration including publication policy. The development will be done by an adequate team of scientists and engineers with a long-standing record in interferometry, adaptive optics, and astronomical instrumentation.
