The extinction curve in the visible and the value of RV

This article discusses the interstellar extinction curve in the visible and the value of the ratio of absolute to selective extinction RV = AV/E (B – V). It is concluded that the visible extinction

The 2200 Å bump and the interstellar extinction curve

The 2200 A bump is a major figure of interstellar extinction. However, extinction curves with no bump exist and are, with no exception, linear from the near-infrared down to 2500 A at least, often

Sidelight on the Diffuse Interstellar Bands Problem

I investigate the conditions upon which atmospheric absorption may participate to the observation of a diffuse interstellar band (DIB), and the implications it would have. A necessary condition is

Reddening law and interstellar dust properties along Magellanic sight-lines

Abstract This study establishes that SMC, LMC and Milky Way extinction curves obey the same extinction law which depends on the 2200 Å bump size and one parameter, and generalizes the Cardelli,

Les incompatibilites entre la theorie standard de l'extinction interstellaire et l'observation

The standard interpretation of the extinction curve does not agree with some observations. The light we receive from a reddened star must be contaminated by starlight scattered at very small angular

OSETI with STACEE: a search for nanosecond optical transients from nearby stars.

The Solar Tower Atmospheric Cherenkov Effect Experiment (STACEE) high-energy gamma-ray detector is used to look for fast blue-green laser pulses from the vicinity of 187 stars, finding no evidence for laser pulses in any of the data sets.

On the relationship between the continuum of interstellar extinction curves, the 2200 \AA\ bump, and the diffuse interstellar bands

A previous article argued that the antagonism between sight-lines with and without a bump at 2200 \AA\ disappears, and that the observed properties of interstellar extinction can be globally
