PHOENIX is a general-purpose state-of-the-art stellar and planetary atmosphere code. It can calculate atmospheres and spectra of stars all across the HR-diagram including main sequence stars, giants, white dwarfs, stars with winds, TTauri stars, novae, supernovae, brown dwarfs and extrasolar giant planets. Our own research concentrates on:

  • Novae
  • Supernovae
  • Cool stars
  • Substellar objects
  • Radiation transport
  • Algorithms
  • Support for the GAIA mission

PHOENIX is developed within the theory group of the Hamburg Observatory.
