Sulphur-bearing molecules in star forming regions: Observational and laboratory investigationsClosing date: 2018-06-01
Contact: Francois Dulieu
The interstellar medium is filled with molecules, particularly in dense molecular clouds where also stars and planets form. Understanding the origin of these molecules requires a combination of state-of-the-art astrochemical experiments and observations of molecules in space. This thesis aims at tackling a longstanding problem in astrochemistry, the Sulphur chemistry in star-forming regions, particularly the origin of H2S in ices, as well as its link with other observed forms in space. Half of the work will be devoted to laboratory astrophysics.
