The Bonn-Berkeley APEX SZ SurveyThe Submm Group at the MPIfR and the Bolometer Cosmology group at UC Berkeley have joined forces to undertake a large area SZ survey using a state of the art bolometer array at the APEX telescope. The survey will address many of the currently pressing issues of cosmology research.
The APEX telescope is currently being commissioned and is expected to go into regular operation by May 2005. The APEX-SZ camera under construction at Berkeley is expected to undergo first tests at the telescope in mid 2005.
You can find a more extensive introduction to the project on the Berkeley web pages.
|There are a number of doctoral and postdoc positions available at Bonn to work on the APEX-SZ survey. Application deadline: 1 Feb 2005.|
