  • Following tentative identification of the blue luminescence in the Red Rectangle by Vijh et al., we computed absolute fluxes for the vibrational IR emission and phosphorescence bands of three small polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. The calculated IR spectra were compared with available ISO observations. A subset of the emission bands are predicted to be observable using presently available facilities, and can be used for an immediate, independent, discriminating test of their alleged presence… CONTINUE READING
