Features & Developments

Work in progress

  • Mechanical alignment of dust grains in sub-sonic environments
  • Enhanced grain alignment due to pinwheel torques
  • Scattering on non-spherical partially aligned dust grains
  • Goldreich-Kylafis effect
  • Emission of spinning nano-grains
  • Incorporation of lines emissions from an OPIATE database with fits support


Upcoming features

  • Automatic calculation of characteristic alignment timescales to confirm MHD-data
  • Partial diffusion approximation (PDA) to further optimize the dust heating process
  • Line radiative transfer with multi-level populations

For current development see GitHub.
