Description

Title:Ground and airborne observations of interstellar hydrides: news results from APEX and SOPHIA
Author(s):Wyrowski, Friedrich
Subject(s):Mini-symposium: Astronomical Molecular Spectroscopy in the Age of ALMA
Abstract:Hydrides are key ingredients of interstellar chemistry since they are the initial products of chemical networks that lead to the formation of more complex molecules. The fundamental rotational transitions of light hydrides fall into the submillimeter wavelength range and are therefore difficult to observe from the ground. Here we report on new observation of hydrides using the Atacama Pathfinder Experiment telescope (APEX) at the excellent Chajnantor site at 5100m altitude and the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA). Detections of SH,\chem{SH^+}, \chem{H_2O}, OH, \chem{OH^+}, \chem{NH_2}, \chem{NH_3} in diffuse clouds and the envelopes of star forming regions will be discussed.
