Comet Notes
Professor Lutz is exploring the physical characteristics
of planetary nebulae, their central stars and how
planetary nebulae fit into the patterns of stellar
evolution. She also analyzes the spectra of symbiotic
stars (binaries containing an evolved hot star and a cool
star) to determine their chemical compositions,
velocities and variability.
