Using the Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical radio Telescope in Guizhou, China, we detect the 21 cm neutral atomic hydrogen absorption in the young planetary nebula IC 4997. The absorption arises from a shell that is also associated with Na i D lines. The H i shell has a mass of 1.46 × 10−2 M ⊙ and a dynamic age of 990 yr. The column density of H i is estimated to be 7.1 × 1020 cm−2, which can be well explained in terms of a photodissociation region around the ionized nebula, limited by the… 


Atomic hydrogen in planetary nebulae
The authors searched for neutral atomic hydrogen associated with 22 planetary nebulae and three evolved stars in the 21 cm line at the Arecibo Observatory. Objects whose radial velocities permitted
Circumnebular neutral hydrogen in planetary nebulae
Centimeter line observations of six compact planetary nebulae are reported. Circumnebular atomic hydrogen absorption has been observed in NGC 6790, NGC 6886, IC 418, IC 5117, and BD +30 deg 3639,
A Search For Atomic-Hydrogen From Evolved Stars And Planetary-Nebulae
With the 1000 foot (305 m) Arecibo antenna, we searched for 21 cm wavelength radiation from atomic hydrogen in expanding envelopes around a total of 13 red giant stars and planetary nebulae. For some
Neutral hydrogen associated with the planetary nebula NGC6302
Observations of the 21-cm line of neutral hydrogen in absorption made with the Very Large Array (VLA) towards the thermal radio source in the planetary nebula NGC6302 show two velocity components at
We present new results of a spectroscopic survey of circumstellar H I in the direction of evolved stars made with the Nançay Radiotelescope. The H I line at 21 cm has been detected in the
Abstract : Six planetary nebulae were observed at the frequency of the 21 cm hydrogen line in an attempt to detect absorption of the thermal radio emission in neutral hydrogen in the outer parts of
The spectrum of the variable planetary nebula IC 4997
The compact, dusty, presumably young planetary nebula (PN) IC 4997 has been studied extensively since the variability of the lambda 4363/lambda 4340 ratio was established in 1956. Since 1938, other
Molecular chemistry and the missing mass problem in planetary nebulae
Context. Detections of molecular lines, mainly from H2 and CO, reveal molecular material in planetary nebulae. Observations of a variety of molecules suggest that the molecular composition in these
Post-Asymptotic Giant Branch Evolution in the Large Magellanic Cloud: A Study of the Central Stars of Planetary Nebulae
We present medium- and broadband Hubble Space Telescope (HST) photometry of a sample of 35 central stars (CSs) of planetary nebulae (PNs) in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). The observations were
Determination of Planetary Nebulae angular diameters from radio continuum spectral energy distribution modelling
Powerful new, high resolution, high sensitivity, multi-frequency, wide-field radio surveys such as the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder (ASKAP) Evolutionary Map of the Universe (EMU) are
