402-0364-17LRadiation Processes in Astrophysics6 credits2V + 1US. Cantalupo
AbstractIn this course, the students will investigate the physical processes that produce and modifies the electromagnetic radiation that we receive from distant astronomical sources, with a particular focus on extragalactic objects and large scales (diffuse gas in intergalactic space and within groups and cluster of galaxies).
ObjectiveBy studying in detail the mechanisms that produce and modify the electromagnetic radiation of astronomical sources, the students will learn how to investigate and characterise the physical properties of the baryonic component of the Universe in a variety of astronomical situations, including: diffuse intergalactic gas, intragroup and intracluster media, and gas associated with Active Galactic Nuclei jets. In particular, we will examine a large range of processes that cover most of the electromagnetic spectrum, including radio, infrared, optical and X-ray and the basics of radiative transfer for continuum and resonant lines.
Prerequisites / NoticeThe course is geared towards advanced students (Master and Ph.D) in astrophysics and the physical sciences.

AbstractDuring the semester there is a colloquium every week on actual research by the members of the Institute of Astrophysics. In general, colloquia are 20 minutes excluding discussion. They start with a general introduction, review techniques and methods of general interest and present results. The goal is to inform all members of the institute about current work.
ObjectiveA colloquium is a combination of a 10 minute conference paper preceded by a 10 minute widely understandable introduction. The discussion is limited to 10 minutes, but may continue privately. The research colloquia are announced in the ETH Vorlesungsverzeichnis, but are not publicized in the Wochenbulletin of the Department of Physics. All colloquia are given in English.
