Pre-solar grains from novae and "Born-again giants" (2024)
Book Chapter
Evans, A., & Gehrz, R. (2024). Pre-solar grains from novae and "Born-again giants". In Presolar grains in extra-terrestrial materials. Elsevier

We review the properties of dust formed during classical nova eruptions and the Very Late Thermal Pulses (VLTPs) that occur during the later stages of post-Asymptotic Giant Branch evolution of low-mass stars. In both cases, carbon and hydrocarbon dus... Read More about Pre-solar grains from novae and "Born-again giants".
