Abstract: AbstractWe 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 so…
