DIANA Project

DIANA is an European Framework Seven (FP7) project, SPACE-2011 collaboration, project no 284405, which conducts a systematic collection and coherent analysis of observational data from the birth-places of extrasolar planets, the so-called protoplanetary discs. DIANA stands for DIscANAlysis.

SAFARI/SPICA Project

SPICA is a joint European-Japanese project under phase-A study at ESA: an infrared space observatory with a large, cryogenically cooled telescope. One of the instruments on board is SAFARI, a far-IR spectrometer providing instantaneously wavelength coverage of the 34 to 230 micron domain. One of the core objectives of this mission is to trace the gas, dust and ice evolution in planetary systems.

The infrared line-emitting regions of T Tauri protoplanetary disks

11
Oct, 2019

Mid-infrared molecular line emission detected with the Spitzer Space Telescope is often interpreted using slab models. However, we need to understand the mid-infrared line emission in 2D disk models, such that we gain information about from where the lines are being emitted and under which cond...

Origin of hydrogen fluoride emission in the Orion Bar: An excellent tracer for CO-dark H2 gas clouds

01
Oct, 2019

The hydrogen fluoride (HF) molecule is seen in absorption in the interstellar medium (ISM) along many lines of sight. Surprisingly, it is observed in emission toward the Orion Bar, which is an interface between the ionized region around the Orion Trapezium stars and the Orion molecular cloud. W...

Infrared and sub-mm observations of outbursting young stars with Herschel and Spitzer

02
Sep, 2019

Episodic accretion plays an important role in the evolution of young stars. Although it has been under investigation for a long time, the origin of such episodic accretion events is not yet understood. We investigate the dust and gas emission of a sample of young outbursting sources in the infr...
