In science:

Most of the proplyds in the field of view were detected at centimeter wavelengths with the VLA (Churchwell et al. 1987; Felli et al. 1993) and have spectral energy distributions that are consistent with thermal bremsstrahlung (Garay, Moran, & Reid 1987).
The Masses of the Orion Proplyds from Submillimeter Dust Emission
The region around CGPSE 201 (Sh 2-235) has been studied in some detail (Israel & Felli 1978) owing to its compact nature, which facilitates interferometric observations, and the fact it contains a number of embedded infrared sources.

Stars with spherically symmetric, isothermal, and stationary outflows are predicted to produce radio spect ra with a characteristic frequency dependence of S ν ∝ ν0.6 (see, Panagia & Felli, 1975; Wright & Barlow 1975).
