Περίληψη :

Astrophysical masers are one of the best tools in studying star formation processes, especially in massive star-forming regions where star formation cores are deeply embedded in a complex gaseous environment. In this talk, I will give examples of such studies where physical conditions (e.g. magnetic fields) as well as kinematics of the regions can be derived from. I will also highlight time-domain studies of masers which help us to understand not only the physics and dynamics of the regions but also maser physics itself. At the end of my talk, I will briefly present the latest development of radio astronomy research in Thailand including the new 40-m Thai National Radio Telescope (TNRT) and its future key science.
