Reconstructing the Stellar UV and EUV Emission that Controls the Chemistry of Exoplanet Atmospheres Conference Proceeding uri icon

Overview

abstract

  • AbstractLyman-α and extreme-ultraviolet radiation from exoplanet host stars are critically important for evaluating the phototchemistry of planetary atmospheres, but these emissions are largely or completely absorbed by hydrogen in the interstellar medium. We describe a new technique for estimating the intrinsic Lyman-α and EUV fluxes of F, G, K, and M stars using correlations with observable emission lines.
