Next: What is new? Up: Call for Observing Proposals Previous: Call for Observing Proposals


Proposals for three types of receivers will be considered for the coming winter semester:
  1. the observatory's set of four dual polarization heterodyne receivers centered at wavelengths of 3, 2, 1.3, and 1.1 mm.
  2. the 9 pixel dual-polarization heterodyne receiver array, HERA, operating at 1.3 mm wavelength
  3. a 1.2 mm bolometer array with 37 or 117 pixels
In total, about 2800 hours of observing time will be available, which should allow scheduling of a few longer programmes (up to $\sim 150$ hours). The main news, proposal formalities, details of the various receivers, and observing modes are described below.
