Boy Lankhaar

Doctoral Student at Chalmers, Space, Earth and Environment, Astronomy and Plasmaphysics, Galactic Astrophysics

Boy Lankhaar is a theoretical chemist working on astrophysical problems. He is a part of the division for Astronomy and Plasma Physics and has his office at the Onsala Space Observatory. Boy's research includes- magnetic field measurements with the help of maser-polarization observations- modelling of molecular hyperfine structure and Zeeman effects, with a special interest for non-rigid effects- investigating the possibility of graviational wave measurements with the help of molecular masers
