Abstract:We identified gigahertz-peaked spectra behavior from our radio interferometric observations at low frequencies using the Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope. We modeled the turnover spectra based on thermal free-free absorption in the interstellar medium. The free-free absorption is believed to be responsible for the inverted spectrum. Using the model, we were able to put some observational constrains on the physical parameters of the absorbing matter, which allows us to distinguish between the possible sources of… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
