At the Institute for Astronomy, we are playing a leading role in developing the technology that makes new scientific discoveries possible. There are four areas in which UH astronomers and engineers are pushing observational astronomy beyond its current boundaries:
Special-purpose telescopes that might be built in the future.
Electronic cameras and spectrographs for the telescopes on Mauna Kea and Haleakala.
Ultra-sensitive mega-pixel CCD arrays for detecting light and infrared radiation.
Overcoming the image blurring that is caused by Earth's atmosphere
