WaterStars, from observation to experiments on water in spaceClosing date: 2021-10-01
Contact: Fabrice Herpin
Understanding the excitation of water in evolved stars implies knowing the collision rates for pure rotational transitions within the first four excited vibrational states (v1=1, v2=1, 2 and v3=1) as well as the rotational transitions between the ground state and these excited states. The first objective is therefore to obtain these collision rates. The second is to include these in an advanced radiative transfer code to reproduce the ALMA observations (ATOMIUM consortium).

A study of the winds of evolved cold starsClosing date: 2021-06-01
Contact: Fabrice Herpin
This thesis aims to build a coherent and comprehensive description of the mass-loss mechanism. How are the winds launched and which physical processes determine their properties? How do the mass-loss rate and other wind properties depend on fundamental stellar parameters? What is the origin of the detected magnetic field on the stellar surface? What chemical processes dominate in the winds? Where does the interaction between dynamics and chemical phenomena lie?
