NANOCOSMOS has successfully achieved significative breakthroughs to address the fundamental problem of cosmic dust formation. We have designed and implemented innovative experimental set-ups and analytical tools well beyond the state-of-the-art. Next we describe the design, construction, implementation and commissioning of these innovations in the dedicated links:
- Stardust machine.
- AROMA (Astrochemistry Research of Organics with Molecular Analyzer).
- PIRENEA 2 (improvement of the “Ion Trap for the Research and Study of New Astrochemical Species”).
- GACELA (Gas Cell for Laboratory Astrophysics).
- Nanocosmos millimeter broad band receivers for GACELA and the 40m Yebes radio telescope.
NANOCOSMOS is providing new exciting experimental results in different research fields and challenging theoretical grounds. This menu is devoted to the description and analysis of Outstanding Results and potential new challenges.
