From observation to dissemination – RadioNet Transnational user A. Zavagno reports

My research field deals with the formation of high mass stars. I am interested in the role of already formed high mass stars (and their associated ionized - HII - regions) on the possible formation of a new generation of (high mass) stars. The many available infrared and submillimetre surveys have revealed the important of [...]
