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.

Substructures in the Keplerian disc around the O-type (proto)star G17.64+0.16

15
Jun, 2019

We present the highest angular resolution (20x15mas - 44x33au) Atacama Large Millimeter/sub-millimeter Array (ALMA) observations currently possible of the proto-O-star G17.64+0.16 in Band 6. The Cycle 5 observations with baselines out to 16km probes scales <50au and reveal the rotating disc aro...

The role of atom tunneling in gas-phase reactions in planet-forming disks

06
Jun, 2019

This paper investigates the impact of the increased reaction rate constant due to tunneling effects on planet-forming disks. Our aim is to quantify the astrophysical implications of atom tunneling for simple molecules that are frequently used to infer disk structure information or to define the...

Highly Ordered and Pinched Magnetic Fields in the Class 0 Proto-Binary System L1448 IRS 2

28
May, 2019

We have carried out polarimetric observations with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) toward the Class 0 protostellar system L1448 IRS 2, which is a proto-binary embedded within a flattened, rotating structure, and for which a hint of a central disk has been suggested, but ...
