Application of X-ray plasma diagnostics to nova winds

Jan-Uwe Ness (European Space Astronomy Centre, ESA) The X-ray plasma diagnostics of optically thin plasma in collisional equilibrium as developed for coronal plasma can also be applied to other astrophysical environments to which the underlying assumptions apply. The technique of reconstructing … Continue reading

Probing the properties of nebular plasmas with optical and IR spectroscopy

M. J. Barlow (Dept of Physics & Astronomy, University College London) Ionized nebulae provide spectacular probes of conditions that cannot easily be recreated in the laboratory. Their spectra are dominated by dipole-forbidden transitions from ions of carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, neon … Continue reading
