The CMS experiment at the CERN LHC
The Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) detector is described. The detector operates at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. It was conceived to study proton-proton (and lead-lead) collisions at a
First Light for the KMOS Multi-Object Integral-Field Spectrometer
The Messenger 151 – March 2013 co-rotating structure, was too large to fit into any available air-freight carrier. This large item was therefore securely packed and made the slightly more perilous,
Sizes, colour gradients and resolved stellar mass distributions for the massive cluster galaxies in XMMUJ2235-2557 at z = 1.39
We analyse the sizes, colour gradients and resolved stellar mass distributions for 36 massive and passive galaxies in the cluster XMMUJ2235-2557 at z = 1.39 using optical and near-infrared Hubble
The Software Package for Astronomical Reductions with KMOS: SPARK
The K-band Multi Object Spectrograph (KMOS) is a multi-object near-infrared integral field spectrometer with 24 deployable cryogenic pick-off arms. Inevitably, data processing is a complex task that
MOONS: the Multi-Object Optical and Near-infrared Spectrograph for the VLT
MOONS is a new Multi-Object Optical and Near-infrared Spectrograph selected by ESO as a third generation instrument for the Very Large Telescope (VLT). The grasp of the large collecting area offered
MICADO: first light imager for the E-ELT
MICADO will equip the E-ELT with a first light capability for diffraction limited imaging at near-infrared wavelengths. The instrument’s observing modes focus on various flavours of imaging,
Red Supergiants as Cosmic Abundance Probes: The Sculptor Galaxy NGC 300
We present a quantitative spectroscopic study of twenty-seven red supergiants in the Sculptor Galaxy NGC 300. J-band spectra were obtained using KMOS on the VLT and studied with state of the art
A Dynamical Analysis of the Poor Galaxy Clusters Abell 2626 and Abell 2440
We use 189 new radial velocities, an $R$ band CCD mosiac, archival X-ray images, and gas temperatures to study substructure, masses, luminosity functions, and mass-to-light ratios in A2626 and A2440.
