Bat 713, salle de séminaires Galilée , CEA Saclay, Orme des Merisiers

The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is the most powerful space-based infrared observatory ever built. The first part of the talk will discuss the main structures of the
telescope and its assembly after launch. The talk will then highlight the extremely exciting science results in the field of star and planet formation, including the nature of protostars and planet-forming disks. A special emphasis will be placed on the accretion process and the chemical building blocks of disks and what we can learn from infrared spectroscopy regarding the inventory of material in the terrestrial planet-forming zone.
