The Astrophysics graduate courses at INPE were conceived to generate M.Sc. and Ph.D. staff prepared to face the challenges of astrophysical research at INPE and, more generally, all over Brazil.

The reader will find below a brief description of the research activities carried at the Astrophysics Division (DAS):
  • Theoretical studies and observations in stellar astrophysics, extragalactic astrophysics, cosmology and extrasolar planets.

  • Observations and phenomenological analysis of the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation, as well as cosmic X- and gamma-ray sources.

  • Solar studies, including solar flares, their propagation effects in the interplanetary environment, solar-terrestrial phenomena and its relation to space weather.

  • Studies in gravitational waves astrophysics. To suppport these efforts, INPE is leading the efforts to build and operate the first gravitational waves observatory in Brazil.

  • Various studies in radioastronomy: quasars, radio galaxies, stars and star-forming regions, both in continuum and spectral lines.

Following INPE's tradition, DAS strongly supports the development of astronomical instrumentation in all areas. Our scientists are deeply involved in the design, production and operation of radio interferometers, gravitational wave detectors, satellites, microwave receivers, infrared detectors, besides other components and parts of the instrumentation.

Thesis' and dissertations' subjects should be linked to projects and research activities conducted at INPE.
