Benefits of Integral Field Spectroscopy

2-Dimensional spectroscopy (3-D data cube)

Simultaneous imaging in multiple lines

Images taken with same weather conditions (seeing and cloud)

All images aligned on the sky (differential refraction found to be minimal)

Perfect “continuum-subtraction” possible - ideal for bright jet sources!!

velocity

resolution!

though clearly there’s

important kinematic

information that we

are just missing…

Acceleration along jet?

Gradient across width of flow?

IGRINS!?

Each channel separated by ~100 km/s (one pixel)

Profiles along the jet axis

Full thick line - Br; Dashed thick - continuum

Full thin - H2; Dashed thin - [FeII]

Br coincident with source continuum position, except in closest source, HH 300-IRS;

H-band spectra

1.46-1.86 m

Forbidden [FeII]

Hydrogen recombination

Only see (veiled)

absorption lines from

most evolved source,

HH 83-IRS

0.5” aperture centre

on the source

K-band spectra

H2 and [FeII]

Nebula emission lines

Strong CO bandheads

Hh 34 irs versus hh 83 irs young vs old

HH 34-IRS

versus

HH 83-IRS

(young vs old…)

R ~ 1500 just about makes the cut.

Higher spectral resolution would certainly result in better data!


Correlation between emission lines 1

r = 0.98

P = 2%

Correlation between

emission lines - 1

r = 0.95

P = 6%

Apparent correlation between nebula

lines and high-density inner-disk

tracer, CO

r = 0.87

P = 8%


Correlation between emission lines 2

r = 0.83

P = 21%

However, little or no correlation

between outflow tracers (H2 and

[FeII]) and CO

Is this a result of the H2/[FeII]

excitation mechanism, and the

short cooling times in the post-shock

gas (few years)?

Correlation between

emission lines - 2

r = 0.34

P = 59%


Extinction towards the jet base 1

  • De-reddening J-H and H-K colours in a C-C diagram

Av= 10

Extinction towards the Jet Base - 1

J-H

TTS locus

H-K


Extinction towards the jet base 2

HH 26-IRS (Av = 27)

H2 rotational diagrams

minimising scatter about

linear or second-order

polynomial fits

Extinction

towards the

Jet Base - 2

  • R2 - square of correlation coefficient

  • Vary Av - measure R2

  • (goodness of fit).

  • Best R2 gives Av

  • o/p =2.53; Tex= 2976 K


Extinction towards the jet base 3

  • HI line ratios - case B recombination, but ratios only consistent with high densities (109-1010 cm-3) and low T (2,000K) - see also Bary et al. 2010

  • H2and [FeII] line ratios - but best if J and H-band [FeII] lines

Extinction towards the Jet Base - 3

  • Range in extinction values

  • No method is entirely satisfactory….

  • Measuring Av is a major issue when trying to probe and quantify the

  • physical conditions at the jet base (particularly for the more embedded

  • Class I sources)


Extinction maps from h 2 and feii line ratios

Extinction maps from H2and [FeII] line ratios

Signs of decreasing extinction

along each jet axis…

(IGRINS - along the slit!)

Electron Density (and Temperature) from [FeII] line ratios

J-band needed to constrain Te

but

H band to constrain density, ne

(relatively insensitive to Te)

ne ~ 104 - 105 cm-3

Models + HH1 data; Nisini et al. (2005)


Electron density maps from feii ratios

Electron Density maps from [FeII] ratios


Electron density maps from feii ratios1

Electron Density maps from [FeII] ratios


Some conclusions

Some Conclusions…

Abundance of (bright) diagnostic lines produced at the base of (and along the length of) these HH jets

IFU spectroscopy - excellent tool for studying these regions

… but …

Long-slit spectroscopy with IGRINS would be extremely useful: velocity and excitation info along the flow (just don’t forget to align the slit with the jet axis!!)


Some conclusions from our ifu data

Some Conclusions…(from our IFU data)

No obvious indication that [FeII] jet component is more collimated than the H2 component

However, high velocities accompanied by smaller opening angles

Extinction decreases rapidly along jet axis

Electron density decreases rapidly along jet axis

Need better spatial AND spectral resolution to properly test/constrain jet collimation and acceleration models.
