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).
