Abstract: Millimeter (mm) recombination lines (RLs) are intrinsically brighter than centimeter RLs and are free of pressure broadening. Mapping mm RLs in massive star formation (MSF) regions would trace the dynamics of the innermost volume where stars more massive than 10 or 20 are forming. We report on our search using ALMA for mm RL emission in two MSF regions.
