The goal of the research currently being conducted by the members of the Astro Metrology Group is to apply physics techniques to various problems in astrophysics, astrometry, interferometry, and related areas. In particular, they adapt new concepts to the measurement of astronomical systems through design and production of novel instruments and use of advanced image processing techniques.
