Planck

Planck

The main goal of Planck was to measure the temperature anisotropies of the CMB to the limit set by astrophysical foregrounds, thereby extracting essentially all of the cosmological information in the primary temperature fluctuations. Further goals were to measure accurately the polarization of the CMB, to determine the properties of a large number of extragalactic sources (including galaxy clusters), and to probe the properties of dust, gas, and magnetic fields in our Galaxy. KICC has been one of the leading institutes in Planck, by hosting one of the main advanced data processing centres and by obtaining some of the primary scientific results.

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.
