Departmental Colloquium


Imaging Cosmic Dawn: The Atacama Large Millimeter Array

Christine Wilson
McMaster University

Time
 
Wed. February 28, 2007     3:30 PM     Stirling A

Abstract
 
When it is completed in 2012, the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) will provide improvements of more than an order of magnitude in sensitivity, resolution, and imaging quality over existing millimetre and submillimetre radio astronomical telescopes. ALMA promises to revolutionize our understanding of the processes of galaxy, star, and planet formation. In my talk, I will review the technology, current state, and future plans for ALMA and present a few key examples to illustrate the wide range of science that will be possible with ALMA.
