Ph.D. Hakan Sert:
I am currently studying on x ray characterization of dark matter by using the data from x-ray satellites in space. There are many theoretical dark matter candidates and some of them have energies at keV levels. Recent studies have found an unidentified emission line at ~3,5 keV in galaxies and galaxy clusters and claimed that the line could be dark matter signal. Our first aim is to find (or not) the same emission line in elliptical galaxies. We will also investigate other possible explanations of dark matter and try to get constraints to them by using data analysis techniques and theoretical approaches.
Ph.D. Onur Ünver:
The mass and gas fraction estimations of Galaxy Clusters through X-Ray data analysis is the main objective of the recent research.
Ph.D. Turgay Çağlar:
My main interest is clusters of galaxies, particularly, ICM dynamics, merging process and evolution of clusters of galaxies. In addition, I study X-ray sources from clusters of galaxies, — in particular, galaxy evolution in clusters of galaxies, AGNs and LMXBs. I am mostly working with X-Ray data from XMM Newton and Chandra, I also work with Suzaku X-ray data.
M.Sc. Kıyami Erdim:
My study is about mass and temperature distribution of cluster of galaxies. I analyse X-Ray observations of clusters, taken from Chandra and XMM-Newtom observatories.
M.Sc. Nergis Cesur:
Long-term X-ray variability study from high spatial resolution of X-ray telescopes such as Chandra and XMM-Newton. The main purpose is analysing the long-term flux and spectral variability of the X-ray point sources. This analysing provides useful information for characterization of the mechanisms of the emission regions.
