Star clusters and star-forming clouds: finding order in chaos

  Research Group: Cardiff Hub for Astrophysics Research and Technology
CONTEXT. Interstellar clouds, and the star clusters they spawn, are chaotic systems, due to the non-linearity of the processes that drive their evolution -- viz. Read more

Bipolar HII Regions produced by Colliding Clouds

  Research Group: Cardiff Hub for Astrophysics Research and Technology
CONTEXT. When two interstellar clouds collide at high speed, they produce a shock-compressed layer, which becomes gravitationally unstable and fragments, producing a cluster of stars. Read more

Revealing the Hidden Light: Understanding the cosmic dust and cold gas in nearby galaxies.

  Research Group: Cardiff Hub for Astrophysics Research and Technology
Cosmic dust is often seen as an annoyance by astronomers, with over half the light ever emitted by stars in the Universe having been absorbed by a dust grain. Read more

Astrophysical interpretation of gravitational waves with space-based observatories

  Research Group: Gravity Exploration Institute
Gravitational-wave astronomy was pioneered in September 2015 with the first direct observation of gravitational waves by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO). Read more

The convergence of interstellar filaments and its link to the formation of the most massive stars

  Research Group: Cardiff Hub for Astrophysics Research and Technology
In the past decade filaments have been recognised as a major structural element of the interstellar medium, the densest of these filaments hosting the formation of most stars. Read more

Do magnetic fields matter when it comes to star cluster formation?

  Research Group: Cardiff Hub for Astrophysics Research and Technology
Stars are the candles of the Universe, they light up every single galaxy allowing us to study their structure across the cosmos. Despite their importance, there are still many aspects of the star formation process that remain poorly constrained. . Read more

JWST and ALMA studies of cosmic dust

  Research Group: Cardiff Hub for Astrophysics Research and Technology
The launch of James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) in December 2021 opens up a new era of studies how dust grains, small particles of minerals, forms and grow in space. Read more

Explosive death of massive stars - supernovae and supernova remnants

  Research Group: Cardiff Hub for Astrophysics Research and Technology
Supernovae are the explosive death of high-mass stars. At this explosive event, stars eject heavy elements, such as iron, oxygen, silicon. Read more

Using numerical relativity to model gravitational waves from binary black holes

  Research Group: Gravity Exploration Institute
Numerical solutions of the Einstein equations for the last orbits and merger of two black holes are essential to model the gravitational-wave signal from such systems, which are the prime source for gravitational-wave observations with Advanced LIGO and Virgo. Read more
