HST / STIS observations of the RW Aurigae bipolar jet : mapping the physical parameters close to the source . ⋆

Abstract

Context. We present the results of new spectral diagnostic investigations applied to high-resolution long-slit spectra obtained with the Hubble Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph (HST/STIS) of the jet from the T Tauri star RW Aur. Aims. Our primary goal is to determine basic physical parameters (electron density ne and electron temperature Te, hydrogen… (More)
