" Extended Infrared Emission associated with Protostars: Views from Spitzer IRAC "
The Infrared Array Camera (IRAC) on Spitzer Space Telescope has observed
extended infrared emission associated with a number of young stellar
objects and star forming regions. These are in many cases attributed to
either shocks in molecular gas, scattered continuum in the outflow
cavity, or PAH emission due to illumination by ultraviolet radiation.
We present our recent studies of such emission, and show that such emission
holds keys for understanding important issues for star formation: .e.g.,
and propagation of jet flows, evolution, circumstellar environments and
the mechanism of mass accretion for high-mass protostars.
Seminars are also held at JAC,
