Astrophysics Seminar Wed 1st 3pm.

This week’s seminar will be by Renske Smit (LJMU), on  “An ALMA view of galaxies in the Epoch of Reionization” Abstract: In the past decade hundreds of galaxy candidates have been identified in the Epoch of Reionization (EoR), selected from their rest-frame UV light. Only a handful of these sources, however, have spectroscopic redshift determinations […]

Astrophysics Seminar – Wed 24th Nov 3pm – Julie Wardlow (Lancaster)

This week’s astrophysics seminar will be by Julie Wardlow, on “Understanding the environments of extreme dusty star-formation in the distant Universe” Abstract: In recent years the high-redshift Universe has been increasingly opened to scrutiny at far-infrared wavelengths, where cool dust emission from star-formation dominates. The dusty star-forming galaxies (DSFGs), selected at these wavelengths likely represent […]

Astronomy seminar – Wed 9th June 3pm

Dr Rebeca Garcia Lopez (UCD) The inner regions of protoplanetary disks: an interferometric view. Find the link to the Teams connection in Astrophysics Group>Seminars. Abstract: A first step towards understanding planetary formation is the characterisation of the structure and evolution of protoplanetary discs.  Although the large scale disc is understood in some detail, very little […]
