Multi-wavelength view of the interstellar medium in the large Magellanic cloud

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


The Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) has been surveyed in optical emission lines, X-rays, radio continuum, HI, and CO lines. These surveys provide views of the interstellar medium (ISM) in the LMC of unprecedented clarity, allowing us to study astrophysical processes and to examine the relationship among the different phases of the ISM. Multi-wavelength images are used to illustrate the physical structures of supernova remnants, superbubbles, and supergiant shells, as well as the global interstellar structure of the LMC.
