Cosmological Parameters

New approaches, increasing observations and advances in technology are helping us to measure and understand the Universe with ever greater precision. All current theories and models are based on a number of well-defined parameters.

Our research at LASTRO consists in measuring these parameters in the most precise and accurate way and using very different and complementary techniques, called “cosmological probes”.
