The Herschel-SPIRE instrument and its in-flight performance
The Spectral and Photometric Imaging REceiver (SPIRE), is the Herschel Space Observatory`s submillimetre camera and spectrometer. It contains a three-band imaging photometer operating at 250, 350 and
Initial highlights from the Herschel Gould Belt survey
We summarize the first results from the Gould Belt survey, obtained toward the Aquila Rift and Polaris Flare regions during the 'science demonstration phase' of Herschel. Our 70-500 micron images
SCUBA-2: the 10 000 pixel bolometer camera on the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope
SCUBA-2 is an innovative 10000 pixel bolometer camera operating at submillimetre wavelengths on the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope (JCMT). The camera has the capability to carry out wide-field surveys
A Herschel PACS and SPIRE study of the dust content of the Cassiopeia A supernova remnant
Using the 3.5-m Herschel Space Observatory, imaging photometry of Cas A has been obtained in six bands between 70 and 500 μm with the PACS and SPIRE instruments, with angular resolutions ranging from
A COOL DUST FACTORY IN THE CRAB NEBULA: A HERSCHEL * STUDY OF THE FILAMENTS
Whether supernovae are major sources of dust in galaxies is a long-standing debate. We present infrared and submillimeter photometry and spectroscopy from the Herschel Space Observatory of the Crab
The Aquila prestellar core population revealed by Herschel
The origin and possible universality of the stellar initial mass function (IMF) is a major issue in astrophysics. One of the main objectives of the Herschel Gould Belt Survey is to clarify the link
Flux calibration of the Herschel-SPIRE photometer
We describe the procedure used to flux calibrate the three-band submillimetre photometer in the Spectral and Photometric Imaging Receiver instrument on the Herschel Space Observatory. This includes
AKARI AND BLAST OBSERVATIONS OF THE CASSIOPEIA A SUPERNOVA REMNANT AND SURROUNDING INTERSTELLAR MEDIUM
We use new large area far infrared maps ranging from 65 to 500 μm obtained with the AKARI and the Balloon-borne Large Aperture Submillimeter Telescope missions to characterize the dust emission
Herschel images of Fomalhaut: an extrasolar Kuiper belt at the height of its dynamical activity
Context. Fomalhaut is a young (2 ± 1 × 10 8 years), nearby (7.7 pc), 2 Mstar that is suspected to harbor an infant planetary system, interspersed with one or more belts of dusty debris. Aims. We
First results from the Herschel Gould Belt Survey in Taurus
The whole of the Taurus region (a total area of 52 deg2) has been observed by the Herschel Spectral and Photometric Imaging Receiver (SPIRE) and Photodetector Array Camera and Spectrometer (PACS)
