Modelling the spectral energy distribution of galaxies. V. The dust and PAH emission SEDs of disk galaxies

Popescu, Cristina C; Tuffs, Richard J; Dopita, Michael; Fischera, Joerg; Kylafis, Nikolaos; Madore, Barry


We present a self-consistent model of the spectral energy distributions (SEDs) of spiral galaxies from the ultraviolet (UV) to the mid-infrared (MIR)/far-infrared (FIR)/submillimeter (submm) based on a full radiative transfer calculation of the propagation of starlight in galaxy disks. This model predicts not only the total integrated energy absorbed in the UV/optical and re-emitted in the infrared/submm, but also the colours of the dust emission based on an explicit calculation of the strength...[Show more]
