Cosmic Dust

Welcome to our Wallenberg project site for project “The Origin and Fate of Dust in the Universe”. The project is a collaboration between astronomers and theoretical chemists at Chalmers University of Technology and Gothenburg University. The aim of the project is to further our understanding of cosmic dust particles, from their formation in stellar environments, their destruction and growth in the Galactic and high-redshift ISM to their interaction with radiation from Active Galactic Nuclei.
