Two of them, SINFONI and GRAVITY, are part of the instrument suite
employed in the discovery and characterization of the Galactic Center Black
Hole, for which Prof. Dr. Reinhard Genzel and Prof. Dr. Andrea Ghez have been
awarded the 2020 Nobel Prize in Physics.
Following his studies of physics at the Technical University of Munich, he started his Master- and PhD theses
with Reinhard Genzel at MPE, where he continued his scientific career to date. Over
the years his experimental focus moved from adaptive optics imaging, to integral
field spectroscopy, and now optical/IR interferometry, always with the goal of
ever better understanding of the physics of black holes and their environment.
Frank Eisenhauer is Adjunct Professor at Technical University of Munich, where he
lectures astrophysics and high angular resolution astronomy.
