The Effect of the Choice of the Grain Model on the H2,Production by Cosmic Rays in Dense Clouds
Since fifty years, the presence of dust in interstellar space was established and a lot of models of the structure of grains have been proposed, changing composition and size distribution, in order to describe correctly extinction and polarization curves.
