Probing the molecular composition of planet-forming regions with ALMA
Dr C Walsh
Applications accepted all year round
ALMA, the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array, is a state-of-the-art telescope in Chile. It has the resolution and sensitivity to observe emission from dust and gas on size scales similar to that of the Solar System in nearby young exoplanet-forming systems.
