25 μm (a more recent and accurate description of the dust grain size distribution can be found in [102]). The largest dust grains are generally in thermal equilibrium with the radiation: they are heated by UV and optical photons and cool by the thermal emission of infrared photons, although other heating and cooling mechanisms are possible [75]. 2) 0 where Q a (ν) is the absorption efficiency, 4π a 2 is the area of the grain. Thus Q a (ν)πI(ν) is the energy absorbed per unit area by a grain, and I(ν) D c u(ν)/4π is the interstellar radiation flux per steradian.

They can be represented by a black body with effective temperature Teff . This approximates the temperature of the star’s outer layer, the photosphere, where the bulk of the emitted radiation originates. 1) where R is the radius of the star and σ is the Stefan–Boltzmann constant. 2) Thus the color of a star mainly depends on its effective temperature. 3) where G is the gravitational constant. The third of parameter characterising stellar atmospheres is their chemical composition (metallicity). Stars have been classified according to their spectral type.

In AGNs, the radio emission is synchrotron radiation associated with the radio jet. Radio continuum polarization observations are also a powerful tool for measuring magnetic fields. 6 mm (115 GHz). The high spectral resolution ( 1 km s 1 ) achieved at millimeter frequencies, combined with interferometric observations, enables accurate studies of the kinematical properties of galaxies down to arcsecond angular scales. In the next years the Square Kilometer Array (SKA) and the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) telescope projects will allow for detailed studies of the kinematical and physical properties of the gaseous component of the ISM of galaxies at extremely high distances.
