Leonard Burtscher 308/3 405 Dr. Klaus Meisenheimer Resolving the central dust structure in nearby Seyfert galaxies To further test the unified model of Active Galactic Nuclei, the properties of the dusty torus, which encapsulates the central engine, need to be determinded. In this project, the interferometric observation of tori of active galaxies (e.g. PhD thesis Tristram et al., 2007) will be extended to more than the few sources currently available. Those data will then be compared to model calculations to gain insights into e.g. the geometry and clumpiness of AGN tori. The measurements will be carried out using the MIDI instrument at the VLTI on Cerro Paranal and will be compared to radiative transfer and hydrodynamical models (e.g. PhD thesis Schartmann et al., 2007).

Mathias Jäger 233 349 Dr. Klaus Meisenheimer Evolution of SED galaxies at high redshift observed with COMBO17+4 With the COMBO17+4 survey it is possible to get photometric redshifts for thousends of objects. Therefore the evolution of galaxies in the red sequence and the blue cloud can be analyzed, excluding cosmological variances. Additionally a catalogue for all identified galaxies, including their SED type, is made. Follow up observations of special objects in the sample are possible.

Christine Ruhland 124 257 Dr. Eric Bell Understanding the assembly of disk galaxies The stellar halos of galaxies contain a lot of information about

the assembly of galaxies owing to their long dynamical times and the relative absence of in-situ star formation. Substructures in the halo give important hints of accretion and merger events and enable us to study the role these events played in forming the Milky Way halo.

Markus Schmalzl A10 392 Prof. Thomas Henning, Dr. Ralf Launhardt The earliest stages of low-mass star formation This thesis focuses on low-mass star formation on different scales. One goal is to see the largescale environment around isolated prestellar cores. The second and main topic of my work is to analyze the prestellar collapse and fragmentation of Bok Globules by means of mm-interferometry.

Jochen Tackenberg 324 462 Priv. Dozent Dr. Henrik Beuther The Early Evolution of High-Mass Star Formation The formation of massive stars is still a major but unsolved issue. Within

this, the time-scales of the different evolutionary stages can put constraints on the processes and mechanisms involved. To tackle/address this question, galactic plane surveys from the IR to the radio regime are correlated and on 30sq deg, a statistical study on high-mass star forming regions will be conducted. In particular, not only the SPITZER surveys GLIMPSE and MIPSGAL, but also ATLASGAL (sub-mm continuum) and CORNISH (cm continuum) will be employed.

Picture Name Room Phone Supervisor Thesis Topic Abstract
Bhargav Vaidya 224 294 Dr. Christian Fendt Theory of Outflows from Massive Stars Massive stars play a vital role in the dynamical evolution of clusters in which they are the major source of heavy elements and UV radiation. During their short life time, they undergo a number of physical processes like winds, photo evaporation, jet like outflows, expanding H II regions and supernova explosions. Outflows from these massive stars are ubiquitous and are observed for stars having wide range in luminosity and age. Observations of large number of massive star forming regions, predict a rather simple and self explanatory picture of the outflow evolution, however, the real physical understanding is missing.

Are these massive jet like outflows magneto-centrifugally driven? What kind of interaction is present between the disc and jet? If magnetic fields are important, where do they come from? In my thesis I will work on the theory of these outflows from massive accretion disc including simulations to investigate physical processes behind the simple outflow evolutionary picture can be understood
