  • Murthy, J (Cambridge University Press, 2014-01)
    A knowledge of the three dimensional distribution of interstellar dust is critical in interpreting all observations of the sky, particularly in the understanding of the structure and morphology of our Galaxy. It has been ...
  • Safonova, M; Murthy, J; Shchekinov, Yu. A (Cambridge University Press, 2016-04)
    A ‘habitable zone’ of a star is defined as a range of orbits within which a rocky planet can support liquid water on its surface. The most intriguing question driving the search for habitable planets is whether they host ...

    The ultraviolet (UV) window has been largely unexplored through balloons for astronomy. We discuss here the development of a compact near-UV spectrograph with fiber optics input for balloon flights. It is a modified ...
  • Pradhan, Ananta C; Panda, Swayamtrupta; Parthasarathy, M; Murthy, J; Ojha, Devendra K (Springer, 2019-10)
    We present the ultraviolet (UV) imaging observation of planetary nebulae (PNe) using archival data of Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX). We found 358 PNe detected by GALEX in near-UV (NUV). We have compiled a catalogue of ...

    HD 219134 hosts several planets, with seven candidates reported, and the two shortest period planets are rocky (4–5 M⊕) and transit the star. Here, we present contemporaneous multiwavelength observations of the star ...

    We present a 3D study of the formation of refractory-rich exospheres around the rocky planets HD219134b and c. These exospheres are formed by surface particles that have been sputtered by the wind of the host star. The ...

  • Gudennavar, S. B; Bubbly, S. G; Preethi, K; Murthy, J (IOP Publishing, 2012-03)
    We have collated absorption line data toward 3008 stars in order to create a unified database of interstellar column densities. These data have been taken from a number of different published sources and include many ...
  • Akshaya, M. S; Murthy, J; Ravichandran, S; Henry, R. C; Overduin, J (Oxford University Press on behalf of the Royal Astronomical Society, 2019-08-08)
    We have used data from the Galaxy Evolution Explorer to study the different components of the diffuse ultraviolet background in the region between the Galactic latitudes 70◦–80◦. We find an offset at zero dust column density ...
