Study of Radio
Emission from Brown Dwarfs at National Radio
aims to study the radio emission characteristics of a sample of brown dwarfs
observed recently with the VLA. The discovery of radio emission from
brown dwarfs (accomplished a few years ago by a group of NRAO summer students!)
surprised the stellar community, and raised deep questions about the continuance
of activity into ultracool stellar objects. The student will work with
Rachel Osten on the data reduction and interpretation of multi-frequency
radio observations designed to pin down the spectral index and variability
of the radio emission, as well as constrain levels of circular polarization
during and outside of flares. Additional data is designed to increase the
number of detections or sensitive upper limits on a range of spectral types.
Ms. Quick will learn the techniques of interferometry in a relatively simple
application, as well as delve into stellar activity characteristics (radio
emission, X-ray emission, H alpha emission) and their intercomparisons.
