Astronomy Colloquium
UPDATED TIME AND DATE
Infrared Spectroscopy of Stars and Planets
Time: 2:30 pm
Place: 4421 Sterling Hall, Coffee and cookies 2:30 PM, Talk begins 2:45 PM
Speaker: Ian Crossfield, MIT Dept of Physics
Abstract: Extrasolar planets and cool stars emit most of their light beyond the range of standard optical observations. These objects are often best studied using infrared spectroscopy. I will present recent results from my group on two topics: space-based IR spectroscopy of exoplanet atmospheres, and ground-based, high-resolution spectroscopy of both planets and stars. I will also conclude with a brief discussing of how future IR-optimized observatories will also enable exciting new science in these areas.
