Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Astronomy
  • Astrophysics
  • Quantum mechanics

Svetlana G. Jorstad spends much of her time researching Astrophysics, Astronomy, Quasar, Blazar and Very Long Baseline Array. Her Astrophysics study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Linear polarization and Optical polarization. Many of her research projects under Astronomy are closely connected to Context with Context, tying the diverse disciplines of science together.

Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Spectral line, Compton scattering, Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope and Gamma ray. Her Blazar research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Observatory and Photon. Her studies examine the connections between Superluminal motion and genetics, as well as such issues in Radio galaxy, with regards to Astrophysical jet.

Her most cited work include:

  • First M87 Event Horizon Telescope Results. I. The Shadow of the Supermassive Black Hole (1308 citations)
  • First M87 Event Horizon Telescope Results. I. The Shadow of the Supermassive Black Hole (1308 citations)
  • THE SPECTRAL ENERGY DISTRIBUTION OF FERMI BRIGHT BLAZARS (751 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Her primary areas of investigation include Astrophysics, Blazar, Astronomy, Quasar and Polarization. Her Light curve, Superluminal motion, Very Long Baseline Array, Gamma ray and Flare study are her primary interests in Astrophysics. Svetlana G. Jorstad works mostly in the field of Superluminal motion, limiting it down to topics relating to Radio galaxy and, in certain cases, Astrophysical jet.

Her Blazar research includes themes of Spectral energy distribution, Active galactic nucleus, Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, Optical polarization and Very-long-baseline interferometry. Her Astronomy research incorporates themes from Wavelength and BL Lac object. Her study in the fields of CTA-102 under the domain of Quasar overlaps with other disciplines such as Population.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Astrophysics (127.19%)
  • Blazar (81.57%)
  • Astronomy (54.23%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Astrophysics (127.19%)
  • Blazar (81.57%)
  • Event Horizon Telescope (11.18%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Astrophysics, Blazar, Event Horizon Telescope, Very-long-baseline interferometry and Flare. Much of her study explores Astrophysics relationship to Polarization. Her work carried out in the field of Blazar brings together such families of science as Spectral energy distribution, MAGIC, Jet, Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope and Optical polarization.

Her research integrates issues of Brightness and Angular resolution in her study of Very-long-baseline interferometry. Svetlana G. Jorstad combines subjects such as Crab Nebula, Observatory, Lorentz factor and Superluminal motion with her study of Flare. Her biological study deals with issues like Very Long Baseline Array, which deal with fields such as Radio galaxy.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • First M87 Event Horizon Telescope Results. I. The Shadow of the Supermassive Black Hole (1308 citations)
  • First M87 Event Horizon Telescope Results. I. The Shadow of the Supermassive Black Hole (1308 citations)
  • First M87 Event Horizon Telescope Results. VI. The Shadow and Mass of the Central Black Hole (514 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Astronomy
  • Quantum mechanics
  • Astrophysics

Her main research concerns Event Horizon Telescope, Astrophysics, Supermassive black hole, Event horizon and Black hole. The various areas that she examines in her Event Horizon Telescope study include Galactic Center and Very-long-baseline interferometry. The concepts of her Astrophysics study are interwoven with issues in Linear polarization and Brightness.

Her research investigates the connection with Supermassive black hole and areas like Interferometry which intersect with concerns in Deconvolution and Synthetic data. Her research in Event horizon focuses on subjects like General relativity, which are connected to Compact star. Her Blazar study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Spectral energy distribution, Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope and Flare.
