Massive-Star Supernovae as Major Dust Factories
Observations of the Type II supernova 2003gd show that dust formation in supernova ejecta can be efficient and that massive-star supernovae could have been major dust producers throughout the history of the universe. Expand
The coordinated radio and infrared survey for high-mass star formation. II. source catalog
The CORNISH project is the highest resolution radio continuum survey of the Galactic plane to date. It is the 5 GHz radio continuum part of a series of multi-wavelength surveys that focus on theExpand
A mid-infrared imaging catalogue of post-asymptotic giant branch stars
Post-asymptotic giant branch (post-AGB) stars are key objects for the study of the dramatic morphological changes of low- to intermediate-mass stars on their evolution from the AGB towards theExpand
MERLIN polarimetry of the OH masers in OH17.7–2.0

Infrared spectroscopy of eruptive variable protostars from VVV
In a companion work (Paper I), we detected a large population of highly variable Young Stellar Objects (YSOs) in the Vista Variables in the Via Lactea (VVV) survey, typically with class I or flatExpand
Axisymmetry in protoplanetary nebulae: using imaging polarimetry to investigate envelope structure
We use ground-based imaging polarimetry to detect and image the dusty circumstellar envelopes of a sample of proto-planetary nebulae (PPNe) at near-infrared wavelengths. This technique allows theExpand
Circular polarization in star-formation regions: implications for biomolecular homochirality.
Strong infrared circular polarization resulting from dust scattering in reflection nebulae in the Orion OMC-1 star-formation region has been observed and could account for the excess of L-amino acids found in the Murchison meteorite and explain the origin of the homochirality of biological molecules. Expand
Axisymmetry in protoplanetary nebulae - II. A near-infrared imaging polarimetric survey
In an imaging polarimetry survey of candidate post-AGB stars, scattering envelopes are detected around 20 objects. These envelopes represent the final mass-loss phases at the end of the AGB. In allExpand
Molecular Evolution in Protoplanetary Disks : Two-dimensional Distributions and Column Densities of Gaseous Molecules
s of recently accepted papers Molecular Evolution in Protoplanetary Disks: Two-dimensional Distributions and Column Densities of Gaseous Molecules Yuri Aikawa and Eric Herbst 1 Department of Physics,Expand
Circumstellar structure of RU Lupi down to au scales
We have used the technique of spectro-astrometry to study the milliarcsecond scale structure of the emission lines in the T Tauri star RU Lupi. The wings of the Hα emission are found to be displacedExpand
