The HITRAN 2008 molecular spectroscopic database
The new HITRAN is greatly extended in terms of accuracy, spectral coverage, additional absorption phenomena, added line-shape formalisms, and validity, and molecules, isotopologues, and perturbing gases have been added that address the issues of atmospheres beyond the Earth. Expand
The HITRAN2012 molecular spectroscopic database
This paper describes the status of the 2012 edition of the HITRAN molecular spectroscopic compilation. The new edition replaces the previous HITRAN edition of 2008 and its updates during theExpand
The Spitzer Extragalactic Representative Volume Survey (SERVS): Survey Definition and Goals
We present the Spitzer Extragalactic Representative Volume Survey (SERVS), an 18 square degrees medium-deep survey at 3.6 and 4.5 microns with the post-cryogenic Spitzer Space Telescope to ~2 microJyExpand
Detection of (15)NNH+ in L1544: non-LTE modelling of dyazenilium hyperfine line emission and accurate (14)N/(15)N values
Samples of pristine Solar System material found in meteorites and interplanetary dust particles are highly enriched in (15)N. Conspicuous nitrogen isotopic anomalies have also been measured inExpand
Deuterated methanol in the pre-stellar core L1544
Context. High methanol (CH3OH) deuteration has been revealed in Class 0 protostars with the detection of singly, doubly, and even triply D-substituted forms. Methanol is believed to form during theExpand
Rotational spectroscopy of the isotopic species of silicon monosulfide, SiS.
An improved set of spectroscopic parameters for SiS has been derived which include several terms describing the breakdown of the Born-Oppenheimer approximation, and highly accurate rotational frequencies for this important astronomical molecule can now be predicted well into the terahertz region.

Accurate rotational rest-frequencies of CH2NH at submillimetre wavelengths
Context. Methanimine (CH2NH) has been detected in different astronomical sources, both galactic (as in several “hot cores”, the circumstellar enevolope IRC+10216, and the L183 pre-stellar core) andExpand
Detection of N 15 NH + in L1544
Context. Excess levels of 15 N isotopes which have been detected in primitive solar system materials are explained as a remnant of interstellar chemistry which took place in regions of the protosolarExpand
Accurate sub-millimetre rest frequencies for HOCO+ and DOCO+ ions
Context. HOCO + is a polar molecule that represents a useful proxy for its parent molecule CO 2 , which is not directly observable in the cold interstellar medium. This cation has been detectedExpand
Seeds of Life in Space (SOLIS) II. Formamide in protostellar shocks: Evidence for gas-phase formation
Context. Modern versions of the Miller-Urey experiment claim that formamide (NH 2 CHO) could be the starting point for the formation of metabolic and genetic macromolecules. Intriguingly, formamideExpand
