Division Prof. Dr. Jim Hinton

Research projects and research groups

Research in the division is in the area of experimental and observational high-energy astrophysics and astroparticle physics and is conducted jointly with the particle physics and high-energy astrophysics division of Werner Hofmann. Populations of relativistic particles in astrophysical environments are probed using a wide range of tracers, but with particular focus on high-energy gamma-rays. The division is deeply involved with two major projects in this area: the High Energy Stereoscopic System (H.E.S.S.), an operating system of Cherenkov telescopes in Namibia and the Cherenkov Telescope Array, a global project to build the next generation gamma-ray observatory.
