ALMA

KICC researchers are leading multiple observing programmes exploiting the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA), the most sensitive facility in the world at millimeter/submillimeter wavelengths, consisting in 66 high precision antennae, located in the Chile's Atacama desert, altitude of 5,000 meters. Our observing programmes leverage also on the expertise gained by the Cavendish Astrophysics group, which contributed to the development of some of the key ALMA subsystems. KICC researchers are using ALMA to investigate the gas content, star formation and dynamics of distant galaxies.
