Experimental Astrochemistry: From the Laboratory to the Stars – Dr. Holger Kreckel

Dr. Kreckel’s Website Please note that this is a Chemistry Faculty Hire seminar. Abstract: Approximately 160 molecules have been detected in space to date and new telescopes like Herschel and ALMA aim to unravel the molecular composition of the universe. Laboratory experiments can help us to understand the role of molecules in interstellar reaction networks […]

Pathways to Chemical Complexity During Star- and Planet-Formation – Dr. Karin Öberg

Dr. Öberg’s Website Please note that this is a Chemistry Faculty Hire seminar. Abstract: Complex organic molecules (>6 atoms) have been detected toward low- and high-mass protostars, galactic center clouds, protostellar outflows and comets, demonstrating the existence of efficient astrophysical pathways to chemical complexity. The detected molecules all reside in the gas. Yet they probably […]
