Associate Professor OYA, Shin
- Adaptive Optics, Near Infrared Astronomy, Instrumentation, Large Telescopes
Brief Introduction of Research
- My research interest is on observations of high redshift objects at near infrared wavelengths and the development of instruments for the purpose, especially adaptive optics (AO). AO is a technology to correct wavefront distortion to achieve diffraction-limited performance. In the case of astronomical observations, the cause of the disturbance is terrestrial atmospheric turbulence.
The diffraction-limited resolution of large telescopes, for example, Subaru and TMT can be only realized by using AO. To expand understanding of the evolution history of the early universe,
I am currently in charge of the primary mirror production for TMT project.
