The Diffuse Interstellar Bands / Edition 1

While the origin of the diffuse interstellar bands in interstellar rather than stellar material was established soon after their discovery early in this century, their precise identification has eluded generations of astronomers. However, advances in optical techniques, laboratory studies of astrophysically relevant materials, and our general understanding of the interstellar medium may be changing that. Current indications are that the carrier is molecular in origin.
The 40 invited reviews in The Diffuse Interstellar Bands bring the reader to the forefront of research, covering observation, theory and laboratory experiments.
Audience: An interdisciplinary work posing a challenge to astronomers, physicists and chemists interested in the visible spectra of large molecules. Also recommended for graduate students entering the field.
