Dr. Alessandra Candian: “Unveiling the molecular properties of PAHs: a leap into the JWST era”

ABSTRACT: Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH) emission is dominating the infrared spectrum of interstellar objects associated with dust and gas. In the last few years, several theoretical advancements and dedicated studies have provided a decisive infomations that has helped us to peer into the population of AstroPAH. In this talk I will give an overview of where we stands and what we still need to do in order to fully exploit the capabilities of the James Webb Space Telescope.
