Unveiling the Cygnus region with radio waves
Paula Benaglia (Instituto Argentino de Radioastronomía)
Abstract: The Cygnus region of the sky is extremely rich in stars at different evolutionary stages. However, large clouds absorb much of its optical emission, and in the mean time let radio waves traverse. High-energy sources without a known counterpart at other wavelengths are also common in Cygnus. We carried out a survey of \sim 15 sq degrees with the Giant Radio Metrewave Telescope at Khodad, India, at low frequencies to unveil the nature of those unidentified sources and to assess whether stellar objects can be a relevant explanation (P. Benaglia, Ishwara-Chandra C.H., et al, in preparation).
