Abstract

We present spectra between 0.9 and 1.35 μm for MWC 349, LkHα 101, R Mon, V645 Cyg, GL 490, T Tau, and HH 1. The spectra are rich in emission lines. We find evidence for many different emission regions, including virtually all those previously deduced from shorter wavelength spectra. A number of objects have optically thick regions in which O I emission is excited by UV and Lyβ fluorescence. We discuss the physical implications of the observed lines and the role spectroscopy between 0.9 and 1.35 μm can play in future investigations of the evolution of young stars.
