Research Focus of the Institute:

Our research program concentrates on topics related to the prehistory, origin and early evolution of planetary systems. By means of in situ measurements, laboratory analysis and numerical modeling, we investigate our own solar systems with its small bodies (comets and asteroids), its planets and their atmospheres as well as the newly discovered exo-solar planets in order to unravel the physical processes underlying the formation and evolution of these systems. These investigations also include the past and present interaction of the Sun with magnetospheres and atmospheres with the Earth and with comets.
