ESO Workshop on High Resolution Infrared Spectroscopy
High resolution spectroscopy, i.e. approaching a dispersion of few km/s per pixel,
in the infrared is a unique tool to study rotational-vibrational transitions of
many abundant molecules in a multitude of astrophysical
environments. It may serve as a tool to directly detect the atmospheres
of extrasolar planets (hot Jupiters). Infrared atomic transitions provide
for an invaluable complement to optical spectroscopy, ranging from
observations of embedded objects (extinction) to the study of active
stars (better sensitivity to magnetic fields).
The aim of this workshop is to:
The workshop will consist of seven sessions, spanning over four days. It is planned to have several invited speakers for each session, oral contributions of 15min + 5min discussion each and a poster session with approximately 30 posters.
Topics to be addressed in this workshop are the following:
The number of participants for this workshop has to be limited to 110.
