Speakers: Prof. Peter Bernath

The radiation emitted by “cool” astronomical objects such as low mass stars, brown dwarfs and extrasolar planets is dominated by molecular absorption features. (Brown dwarfs are sub-stellar objects that have masses that lie between the coolest stars and giant planets such as Jupiter.)
Molecules of interest include methane, water, ammonia and metal hydrides.
An overview of this new area of molecular astronomy will be presented.
