Interstellar Matter and Cosmology

Welcome to the pages of the team Matière Interstellaire et Cosmologie (MIC) !

 

The team is made of two groups, Matière interstellaire (Interstellar Matter) and Cosmologie (Cosmology). Our research activities span a broad range of fields, from the physics of interstellar dust grains to the cosmology of the primordial universe. Details can be found on the Presentation page and on the thematic pages.

Former Ph.D. candidate at IAS, Jean-Baptiste Durrive has been selected as a Springer Thesis Award recipient for his doctoral thesis, defended the 13 October 2016. His manuscript, Baryonic Processes in the Large-Scale Structuring of the Universe, concerns two fundamental aspects of the evolution of the intergalactic gas, from the Epoch of Reionization until the present day Universe: the emergence of magnetic fields on cosmological scales, and the fragmentation of matter in the sheets and filaments of the cosmic web. His thesis has just been published in the Springer Theses collection. Congratulations Jean-Baptiste!

By combining multi-wavelength data obtained from space with Planck and WISE, and from the ground with MegaCam on the CFHT, a team of researchers has revealed the structure of the diffuse interstellar medium over several square degrees with unprecedented details. In particular, this study reveals the statistical properties of interstellar turbulence over a wide range of scales, from 0.01 to 10 pc.
