Laboratory for Astrophysics
Welcome tof the Laboratory for Astrophysics at Leiden Observatory

In our laboratory we use physical methods to answer chemical questions of astronomical interest. For this we have developed sophisticated experiments fully focused on reproducing the conditions under which molecules form in the inter- and circumstellar medium. Interstellar clouds are simulated with special plasma expansions and chemical reactions on icy dust grains are measured in ultra-high vacuum setups. This provides the data necessary to guide and interpret astronomical observations and to model reaction networks in space.
