1AS1P006Detection of He-rich populations using UV surface brightness fluctuationsChul ChungThe discovery of He-rich populations in Milky Way globular clusters (GCs) has opened a new way of interpreting hot stellar populations in various stellar systems. Here we suggest an efficient diagnosis for detecting He-rich populations using the theoreti
2AS1P024High Latitude galactic star clusters with UVITPriya HasanThe discovery of high latitude clusters are very crucial to our understanding of the galactic halo. If these young stars are formed in the halo, then it is possible that these clusters may get unbound before they reach the disc and young stars may reac
3AS1P019Low frequency break detection in weak low/hard state of GX 339-4 using AstroSat dataNAZMA HUSAIN Using AstroSat data, we report the detection of a characteristic low-frequency break (νb) in the power density spectrum (PDS) of GX 339-4 in the weak low/hard state, when the source luminosity was 0.002 that of the Eddinging value.

5AS1P037Testing the nature of the ULX by AstroSat: UV--X-ray variability in ultra-luminous X-ray source Holmberg~II X-IUnnati KashyapDespite the intensive studies of the ultraluminous X-ray sources (ULXs) in both X-rays and in optical, there is no strong evidence to distinguish between their two competing models. First, they may represent an elusive class of black holes (BHs) – interm

In 2019, it showed two outbursts with a gap of ~ 20 days. We present a spectral and timing analysis of the source during the two outbursts.
12AS1P013X-ray properties of the BHC GRS 1716-249 during its 2016-17 outburstKaushik ChatterjeeWe present the temporal and spectral properties of the BHC GRS 1716-249 during its very recent failed outburst in 2016-17 with the use of Swift/XRT, MAXI/GSC, Swift/BAT, NuSTAR/FPMA, and AstroSat/LAXPC data.
13AS1P005Testing the MgII-LyC connection with AstroSat and MUSECharlotte SimmondsMgII has recently been proposed as a potential tracer of LyC leakage from galaxies: as Lya, it scatters in the cold phase of the ISM and has an ionizing potential similar to hydrogen. We aim to test MgII as an indirect tracer of ionizing radiation.
