13 00 – 13 45 Max Gronke — Title: The distant Universe as seen through Lyman-alpha

Abstract:
The Lyman-alpha (Lya) line of neutral hydrogen is the most prominent
emission line in the Universe, and now provides us with a unique window into the
highest redshifts.
This was, however, not always the case and it took years of hard work from its
predicted observability to newly recorded Lya spectra on a daily
basis. In this presentation, I want to talk about the modern usage of
Lya to (i) understand and constrain the last phase transition of the
Universe – the Epoch of Reionization, and (ii) to study the cold gas
supplies of galaxies which are essential for their formation and
evolution.

Sola

15 15 – 16 00 Tiago Pereira — Title: Chasing the elusive 1% of solar light

Abstract:
Over the last decade, solar astronomers have increasingly focused on the
mysterious 1% of solar radiation that is not emitted at the solar
surface. The solar flux is 99% optical and infrared radiation, but a
small number of high-energy photons comes to us from higher layers in
the solar atmosphere. These layers hold the key to understanding what
drives powerful solar storms and how  energy is transported across the
atmospheres of stars. It is, however, very difficult to observe those
regions: they are not only faint, but events there occur very quickly
and in small scales. I will detail recent advances in instrumentation
that make these observations possible, and how they are changing our
views of the Sun.
