The Influence of Dust Properties on the Mass Loss in Pulsating AGB Stars
2002 (English)In: Radial and Nonradial Pulsations as Probes of Stellar Physics, ASP Conference Proceedings, Vol. 259, 2002Conference paper (Other scientific)
We are currently studying carbon based dust types of relevance for carbon-rich AGB stars, to obtain a better understanding of the influence of the optical and chemical properties of the grains on the mass loss of the star. An investigation of the complex interplay between hydrodynamics,radiative transfer and chemistry has to be based on a better knowledge of the micro-physics of the relevant dust species.
