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…
Remote sensing of planetary properties and biosignatures on extrasolar terrestrial planets.
It is found that both the mid-IR and the visible to near-IR wavelength ranges offer valuable information regarding biosignatures and planetary properties; therefore both merit serious scientific consideration for TPF and Darwin.
The Herschel Multi-tiered Extragalactic Survey: HerMES
The Herschel Multi-tiered Extragalactic Survey (HerMES) is a legacy programme designed to map a set of nested fields designed to facilitate redshift determination, rapidly identify unusual objects and understand the relationships between thermal emission from dust and other processes.
PACS Evolutionary Probe (PEP) – a Herschel key program
Deep far-infrared photometric surveys studying galaxy evolution and the nature of the cosmic infrared background are a key strength of the Herschel mission. We describe the scientific motivation for…
The deepest Herschel-PACS far-infrared survey: number counts and infrared luminosity functions from combined PEP/GOODS-H observations
We present results from the deepest Herschel-Photodetector Array Camera and Spectrometer (PACS) far-infrared blank field extragalactic survey, obtained by combining observations of the Great…
Water Abundance in Molecular Cloud Cores
We present Submillimeter Wave Astronomy Satellite (SWAS) observations of the 110 → 101 transition of ortho-H2O at 557 GHz toward 12 molecular cloud cores. The water emission was detected in NGC 7538,…
Implications of Submillimeter Wave Astronomy Satellite Observations for Interstellar Chemistry and Star Formation
A long-standing prediction of steady state gas-phase chemical theory is that H2O and O2 are important reservoirs of elemental oxygen and major coolants of the interstellar medium. Analysis of…
The extragalactic infrared background and its cosmological implications : IAU Symposium 204 : proceedings of the 24th General Assembly of the IAU held at Manchester, United Kingdom, 15-18 August, 2000
O-2 in interstellar molecular clouds
We have used the Submillimeter Wave Astronomy Satellite (SWAS) to carry out deep integrations on the NJ = 33 → 12 transition of O2 in a variety of Galactic molecular clouds. We here report no…
