Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Astronomy
  • Astrophysics
  • Galaxy

Astrophysics, Astronomy, Cosmic ray, Pierre Auger Observatory and Galaxy are his primary areas of study. Astrophysics is represented through his Active galactic nucleus, Supermassive black hole, Black hole, Accretion and Galactic Center research. Heino Falcke has researched Cosmic ray in several fields, including Detector and Anisotropy.

His Pierre Auger Observatory research includes elements of Zenith and Neutrino. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Brightness, Angular resolution, Flare and Emission spectrum. His studies deal with areas such as Sky, Telescope, Precision Array for Probing the Epoch of Reionization and Astroparticle physics as well as LOFAR.

His most cited work include:

  • LOFAR: The LOw-Frequency ARray (1540 citations)
  • LOFAR: The LOw-Frequency ARray (1540 citations)
  • LOFAR: The LOw-Frequency ARray (1391 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Astrophysics, Astronomy, Cosmic ray, LOFAR and Galaxy. His study in Astrophysics focuses on Black hole, Active galactic nucleus, Galactic Center, Supermassive black hole and Very-long-baseline interferometry. Heino Falcke combines subjects such as Detector, Neutrino and LOPES with his study of Cosmic ray.

The concepts of his LOFAR study are interwoven with issues in Astroparticle physics, Pulsar and Telescope. The study incorporates disciplines such as Maser, Jet and Flare in addition to Galaxy. His studies in Pierre Auger Observatory integrate themes in fields like Zenith and Muon.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Astrophysics (117.04%)
  • Astronomy (63.87%)
  • Cosmic ray (52.84%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Astrophysics (117.04%)
  • Cosmic ray (52.84%)
  • Event Horizon Telescope (10.37%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Heino Falcke mostly deals with Astrophysics, Cosmic ray, Event Horizon Telescope, Pierre Auger Observatory and LOFAR. His Astrophysics study typically links adjacent topics like Brightness. His Cosmic ray research integrates issues from Computational physics and Detector, Optics.

The Pierre Auger Observatory study combines topics in areas such as Zenith and Neutrino. His research integrates issues of Remote sensing and Antenna in his study of LOFAR. In his research, Thunderstorm is intimately related to Lightning, which falls under the overarching field of Astronomy.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • First M87 Event Horizon Telescope Results. I. The Shadow of the Supermassive Black Hole (1011 citations)
  • First M87 Event Horizon Telescope Results. VI. The Shadow and Mass of the Central Black Hole (402 citations)
  • First M87 Event Horizon Telescope Results. V. Physical Origin of the Asymmetric Ring (375 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Astronomy
  • Astrophysics
  • Optics

Heino Falcke mainly focuses on Astrophysics, Event Horizon Telescope, Cosmic ray, Pierre Auger Observatory and Event horizon. Heino Falcke integrates many fields, such as Astrophysics and Context, in his works. His study in Event Horizon Telescope is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Amplitude, Submillimeter Array and Millimeter.

His Cosmic ray research incorporates elements of Neutrino, Muon and Spectral shape analysis. His Pierre Auger Observatory research includes themes of Zenith and Anisotropy. His Event horizon research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Accretion and Position angle.
