Abstract: The Low Frequency Array enables studies of low-frequency carbon radio recombination lines with unprecedented sensitivity, spectral and spatial resolution. In this thesis we benefit from the capabilities of LOFAR to study the cold interstellar medium through carbon radio recombination lines. We find that at low-frequencies these lines trace cold gas, associated with the C+/CI/CO interface of photo-dissociation regions. This opens up the possibility to study these interfaces over large regions of the Milky Way.
