Imaging the Hot Molecular Gas at the Centre of the Galaxy

  • Michael Burton (a1) and David Allen (a1)

Abstract

The AAT’S new IR array camera, IRIS, has been used to image the Galactic Centre in the He I (2.058μm), H+ Br γ(2.166μm) and H2 1-0 S(l) (2.122μm) emission lines. The case is presented for UV-excitation of the molecular gas, as opposed to shocks.
