In addition to instrument development projects, the UCLA Infrared
Laboratory supports many observational programs.
- Studies of star formation regions in the Galaxy using infrared imaging, spectroscopy and polarimetry.
- The star formation history and stellar content of the Galactic Center from infrared imaging and spectroscopy.
- Studies of the infrared properties of clusters of galaxies at redshifts > 2.0 using infrared spectroscopy.
- The properties of radio galaxies at high redshifts using infrared imaging and spectroscopy.
