Abstract (from CDS):
We present infrared and radio continuum observations of the S 201 star forming region. A massive star cluster is seen, which contains different classes of young stellar objects. The near-infrared colour-colour and colour-magnitude diagrams are studied to determine the nature of these sources. We have discovered knots of molecular hydrogen emission at 2.122µm in the central region of S 201. These knots are clearly seen along the diffuse emission to the north-west and are probably obscured Herbig-Haro objects. High sensitivity and high resolution radio continuum images from GMRT observations at 610 and 1280MHz show an arc-shaped structure due to the interaction between the HII region and the adjacent molecular cloud. The ionization front at the interface between the HII region and the molecular cloud is clearly seen comparing the radio, molecular hydrogen and Brγ images. The emission from the carriers of Unidentified Infrared Bands in the mid-infrared 6-9 µm (possibly due to PAHs) as extracted from the Midcourse Space Experiment survey (at 8, 12, 14 and 21µm) is compared with the radio emission. The HIRES processed IRAS maps at 12, 25, 60 and 100µm have also been used for comparison. The spatial distribution of the temperature and the optical depth of the warm dust component around the S 201 region has been generated from the mid-infrared images.
