Núcleo Milenio Project


This project is a  Nucleo Mileno creditor fund, that seeks to promote the development of extrasolar planets research using technology manufactured in Chile, the will be carried out by experts in astronomy at the University of Valparaíso (UV) and experimental physics researchers from the Scientific and Technological Center of Valparaíso (CCTVal) of the Santa María University (USM).

The proposal worthy of a Núcleo Milenio fund will be led by a group of the Institute of Physics and Astronomy of the University of Valparaíso, formed by Dr. Amelia Bayo as Director, Dr. Matthias Schreiber as Subrogation Director and Dr. Johan Olofsson, leader of the Tandem Group of Astronomy Max Planck-UV, in collaboration with a group of experts of Experimental Physics of the CCTVal of the Santa Maria University, conformed by the doctors Hayk Hakobyan, William Brooks, Christian Romero and Claudio Dib.

With the aim of advancing in the field of astronomical exploration, specifically in the investigation of the phenomenon of formation of extrasolar planets, the proposal called Millennium Nucleus of Formation of Planets, proposes the elaboration of a new generation of telescopes that use astronomical mirrors made on the basis of carbon fiber, which allow progress in the construction of optical resolution mirrors that can be used for astronomical observation.
