Jeffrey L. Linsky

My current research topics include the abundance of deuterium in the Galaxy, structure and physical properties of the local interstellar medium, and X-ray and ultraviolet emission from young stars and protostellar disks. The observational basis of my research is primarily high-resolution ultraviolet spectra obtained with instruments on the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) and the Far Ultraviolet Spectrograph Explorer (FUSE) satellites and X-ray spectra obtained with the Chandra X-ray Observatory. My other research areas include the physical properties of chromospheres, coronae, and winds of late-type stars and active binary systems, flare stars, RS CVn-type binary systems, stellar magnetic fields, and stellar microwave emission.
