    We present the UV photometry of one of the Ultra-Faint Dwarf (UFD) Milky Way (MW) satellite galaxies, Reticulum II, using images acquired with the Ultra-Violet Imaging Telescope (UVIT) onboard AstroSat. Reticulum II is ...
  • Mondal, Chayan; Subramaniam, A; George, Koshy (Indian Academy of Sciences, 2021-10)
    We present an ultra-violet study of two nearby dwarf irregular galaxies WLM and IC 2574, using the Far-UV and Near-UV data from the Ultra-Violet Imaging Telescope (UVIT). We used the F148W band Far-UV images and identified ...
  • Singh, Gaurav; Yadav, R. K. S; Snehalata Sahu; Subramaniam, A (Indian Academy of Sciences, 2021-10)
    We present the study of dynamical status of the globular cluster NGC 1851. A combination of multi-wavelength space and ground-based data sets are used for the present analysis. In order to select the genuine cluster members, ...
  • Kameswara Rao, N; Sutaria, F; Murthy, J; Ray, A; Pandey, G (Indian Academy of Sciences, 2021-10)
    The spectral region between 1250–3000 A contains important spectral lines to understand the ˚ morphological structures and evolution of planetary nebulae. This is the region sampled by UVIT through various filter bands ...
  • Saha, Kanak; Dhiwar, Suraj; Barway, Sudhanshu; Narayan, Chaitra; Tandon, Shyam (Indian Academy of Sciences, 2021-10)
    Malin 1, being a class of giant low surface galaxies, continues to surprise us even today. The HST/F814W observation has shown that the central region of Malin 1 is more like a normal SB0/a galaxy, while the rest of the ...
  • Rahna, P. T; Murthy, J; Safonova, M (Indian Academy of Sciences, 2021-10)
    We have written a reference manual to use JUDE (Jayant’s UVIT Data Explorer) data pipeline software for processing and reducing the Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope (UVIT) Level 1 data into event lists and images—Level 2 ...

  • Sivaram, C; Arun, K (Indian Academy of Sciences, 2021-10)
    Most of the large galaxies host a supermassive black hole, but their origin is still not well understood. In this paper, we look at a possible connection between the gravitational binding energies of large galaxies, etc., ...
