Research: Gravitational Microlensing

Gravitational microlensing has proven to be an interesting tool for detecting low-mass planets beyond 1 kpc. Furthermore the method is especially sensitive for planets with semi-major axes of several AU. The PhD project comprises participating in the search for extrasolar planets by following up potential targets from the OGLE and MOA survey groups using Göttingen's 1.2-m MONET robotic telescopes in Texas and South Africa, as well as the theoretical modeling of anomalous microlensing events like the detectability of debris disks around microlenses. In addition we are trying to extend existing prioritization systems for being able to select the most promising planetary candidates.
