Circumstellar OH Masers

  • R. S. Booth (a1), P. J. Diamond (a1) and R. P. Norris (a2)

Abstract

Synthesis maps of stellar OH maser emission have revealed that the OH lies in expanding spherical shells typically about 1016 cm in diameter. From the maps and the expansion velocity, derived from the OH spectrum, stellar mass loss rates may be determined. Typical values are 10−5 M/yr. An important application of the stellar OH masers is in the estimation of stellar distances.
