Molecular complexity in the Orion Molecular Cloud: from laboratory spectroscopy to new molecules
- Prof. Jose CERNICHARO
The Orion molecular cloud is one the more observed object in sky. Spectra at millimeter and submillimeter waves have been obtained from ground to space born platforms. Together with SgrB2 it exhibits the densest line spectrum. The identification of all these features requires devoted laboratory work to identify all lines coming from isotopologues and vibrationally excited states of abundant species. In this talk we will summarize the work that has been done in this context in the last years with the 30m radio telescope. We will show that once most of the lines are identified, then the search of new molecules become possible and accurate physical conditions can be obtained for the Orion's hot-cores from the available data.
