The Department of High Energy Astrophysics conducts research in the domain of high energy theoretical and observational astrophysics. This department’s research is focussed on astronomical phenomena and the sources which produce high-energy particles and electromagnetic radiation with energies primarily in the Gamma, X-ray and ultraviolet range. Such objects include supernova explosions, pulsars and pulsar nebulae, microquasars, active galactic nuclei and gamma-ray bursts.
Theoretical projects studied :
Microphysics of particle acceleration processes and electromagnetic turbulence generation in space plasma
Diffused cosmic ray transport processes and generation of extended emission of high-energy electromagnetic radiation in the galaxy
Physics of relativistic outflows of strongly magnetised plasma of Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) systems.
Observational studies are based on projects performed with :
