MOONS

MOONS

MOONS is the next generation near-IR multi-object spectrograph for the ESO Very Large Telescope (VLT). The instrument is currently entering its construction phase. MOONS will provide spectra of over a million galaxies in a spectral range and with a sensitivity that will enable us to constrain the cosmic evolution of the key physical properties of galaxies, also as a function of environment. KICC researchers are heavily involved in MOONS, both for the development of hardware subsystems and for the definition of the scientific requirements and observing strategies.

Metallicity gradients in high redshift galaxies via multi-band, near-infrared integral field spectroscopy

Jan 10, 2020

Galaxies at the ‘cosmic noon’ are often characterised by the absence of strong radial gradients in the spatial distribution of metals, consistent with strong feedback mechanisms in place, but is this always reflecting a real spatial homogeneity ? New insights from the KLEVER Survey.
