The research team led by Mao Yewei, faculty of the School of Physics and Materials Science of Guangzhou University(GU), analyzed the multi-band imaging data of far ultraviolet-near infrared observed by space and ground telescopes. They worked out the functional relationship of galaxy morphology with wavelength and the multi-band images of galactic nuclei and disks. The research paper entitled "Multi Wavelength Bulge–Disk Decomposition for the Galaxy M81 (NGC3031). i. Morphology" was published on The Astrophysical Journal Supplement Series, a internationally renowned astronomical journal.
The authors of the paper include Gong Junyu, a graduate student from the School of Physics and Materials Science, Mao Yewei who is the correspondent author, Gao Hua, a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Hawaii and Yu Siyue, a postdoctoral scholar at Humboldt Institute of Radio Astronomy in Germany.
