First detection of vibrationally excited water masers toward embedded young stellar objects

  • Tarja Liljeström (a1), Anders Winnberg (a2) and Roy Booth (a2)

Abstract

We report the first detection of vibrationally excited water maser emission in the circumstellar envelope of two young stellar objects (W51M, Z CMa). The results suggest that the observed 96 GHz water maser emission traces hot gas in an accretional stage of the protostellar evolution.
