Physics Department colloquium

Workman Center

Dr. Peter Hofner of New Mexico Tech and the NRAO will present the Phsyics Department colloquium. His talk is "Jets from Young High-Mass Stars." Early observations of young high-mass stars surprisingly detected bipolar molecular outflows, instead of the expected infall motions. At the base of these flows radio interferometers detected ionized and molecular jets, which we now think of as a fundamentally important component of the formation process of high-mass stars. Hofner will summarize some early work on these objects, leading to the most sensitive survey carried out to date. 4 p.m. in Workman 101.
