Adaptive optics imaging and IFU view of high mass protostars

I will show some first results from adaptive optics imaging and integral field spectroscopy of ultra-hyper compact HII regions obtained in the near-infrared bands. This data enables to identify the infrared protostar, outflow cavities, possible radiation Rayleigh-Taylor instability features within the cavities, toroids/envelopes in BrG emission. The rich data set is compared to benchmark numerical simulations of high-mass star formation.
