  • ALMA

    The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) is the largest ground based astronomical telescope to be built, which will be the preeminent instrument for studies of the relic radiation from the early Universe and of the formation and evolution of stars, planetary systems, galaxies and even the origin of life itself. > Learn more

  • Subaru

    Since 2008 ASIAA has contributed to the wide field visible camera Hyper SuprimeCam (HSC) for Subaru telescope. The main scientific goal of the HSC will be the study of weak gravitational lensing over large areas of the sky so as to unveil the properties of dark matter and dark energy.

  • CompAS

    CompAS is a joint research project of ASIAA, the Institute of Mathematics (ASIM) of the Academia Sinica, and the Department of Mathematics of the National Taiwan University. Its main goal is to develop high-performance codes of computational fluid dynamics and magnetohydrodynamics (CFD-MHD) for astrophysical problems. > Learn more
