from 1991 - 2004 my name was Anlaug Amanda Kaas

Since May 2000 I am working at the Nordic Optical Telescope in La Palma, Canary Islands, Spain.

My main field of research is Star Formation and the origin of the Initial Mass Function.

RGB coded near-IR image of the Serpens Cloud Core star formation region observed with Arnica at the NOT in August 1996 (see Kaas 1999, AJ 118, 558 ). The field is an 8' x 6' mosaic of 4 x 3 frames in the broad band filters J (1.25 µm), H (1.65 µm), and K (2.2 µm). North is up and east is left. Only a handful of stars are optically visible in this region. Even in the near-IR very dense regions are seen as absorption of star light. Note the ridge in the NW-SE direction of apparently very dense material. Mid-IR imaging with ISOCAM shows that recent star formation essentially takes place along this ridge.
