[Ne ii] emission line profiles from photoevaporative disc winds


I model profiles of the [Ne ii] forbidden emission line at 12.81μm, emitted by photoevaporative winds from discs around young, solar-mass stars. The predicted line luminosities (∼ 10L⊙) are consistent with recent data, and the line profiles vary significantly with disc inclination. Edge-on discs show broad (30–40 km s−1) double-peaked profiles, due to the… (More)
