TitleLaser guide star adaptive optics for astronomy: Proceedings of the NATO Advanced Study Institute Cargese, France September 29 - October 10, 1997
Author(s)N. Ageorges (ed.);C. Dainty (ed.)
PublicationDordrecht, 1. Kluwer Academic Publishers 2. Springer, 2000.
Descriptionxxiii, 340p.
Series(NATO Advanced Science Institutes Series C: Mathematical and Physical Sciences)
Abstract NoteAdaptive optics allows the theoretical limit of angular resolution to be achieved from a large telescope, despite the presence of turbulence. Thus an eight meter class telescope, such as one of the four in the Very Large Telescope operated by ESO in Chile, will in future be routinely capable of an angular resolution of almost 0.01 arcsec, compared tot he present resolution of about 0.5 arcsec for conventional imaging in good condition. All the world's major telescopes either have adaptive optics or are in the process of building AO systems. It turns out that a reasonable fraction of the sky can be observed using adaptive optics, with moderately good imaging quality, provided imaging in done in the near IR. To move out of the near IR, with its relatively poor angular resolution, astronomers need a laser guide star. There is a layer of Na atoms at approximately 90 km altitude that can be excited by a laser to produce such a source, or Rayleigh scattering can be employed lower in the atmosphere. But the production and use of laser guide stars is not trivial, and the key issues determining their successful implementation are discussed here, including the physics of the Na atom, the cone effect, tilt determination, sky coverage, and numerous potential astronomical applications.

TitleNature of solar prominences
Author(s)Einar Tandberg-Hanssen
PublicationDordrecht, Kluwer Academic Publishers, 1995.
Descriptionxv, 308p.
Series(Astrophysics and Space Science Library)
Abstract NoteThe last twenty years since the publication of Dr. Tandberg-Hanssen's book Solar Prominences have seen a renewed interest in this most interesting form of solar activity. As a consequence, new ideas have been explored to explain the great variety of prominences, their relationship to solar flares and their seemingly complete dependence on the action of magnetic fields. This new book gives these and other aspects of prominences in a comprehensive treatment and brings out the basic physics behind the often brilliant displays of prominence activity. After an historical introduction and classification of prominences, the necessary mathematical and physical background is presented so that the formation, stability, and disappearance of prominences can be thoroughly discussed. Particular emphasis is given to the intimate relationship between disappearing prominences and the all-important effects of the large-scale coronal magnetic fields. The book is for advanced students in astrophysics and professional solar astronomers.

TitleLife in the universe: From the miller experiment to the search of life on other worlds: Proceedings of the Seventh Trieste Conference on Chemical Evolution and the Origin of life held at Trieste, Italy on 15-19 September 2003

Abstract NoteThe year 2003 was the 50th anniversary of the seminal experiment of Stanley Miller. This was a unique opportunity for highlighting the current interest in this most interdisciplinary subject. The leading space agencies: the European Space Agency (ESA) as well as NASA, the American Space Agency, have planned missions that will elucidate some of the still unknown questions underlying research in the origin of life. New results are surpassing our ability to keep well informed: the reviews that we were presented at the Trieste meeting will bring the readers of this well-documented and timely book up to date in this fast-moving area. An important component of the conference was the review of the Cassini-Huygens mission due to arrive in the Saturn system just one year after the conference convened in Trieste. There was particular interest in the status of the experiments that will take place inside the atmosphere of Titan, the large satellite, which is a testing ground for the theories and experiments in the field of chemical evolution. The Jovian system is currently under study with the view of investigating the possibility of life underneath the frozen surface of the Galilean moon Europa; the ESA mission "Mars Express" and Mars Odyssey received special attention. Some of the world leaders in the field gathered in Trieste in September 2003 - that was a most timely date for reviewing recent data and discussing the prospects of future research.
