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
A dust-obscured massive maximum-starburst galaxy at a redshift of 6.34
Despite the overall downturn in cosmic star formation towards the highest redshifts, it seems that environments mature enough to form the most massive, intense starbursts existed at least as early as 880 million years after the Big Bang.
The Herschel* PEP/HerMES luminosity function - I. Probing the evolution of PACS selected Galaxies to z ≃ 4
We exploit the deep and extended far-IR data sets (at 70, 100 and 160 mu m) of the Herschel Guaranteed Time Observation (GTO) PACS Evolutionary Probe (PEP) Survey, in combination with the Herschel
HerMES: The SPIRE confusion limit
We report on the sensitivity of SPIRE photometers on the Herschel Space Observatory. Specifically, we measure the confusion noise from observations taken during the Science Demonstration Phase of the
The far-infrared/radio correlation as probed by Herschel
We set out to determine the ratio, q(IR), of rest-frame 8-1000um flux, S(IR), to monochromatic radio flux, S(1.4GHz), for galaxies selected at far-IR and radio wavelengths, to search for signs that
On the origin of near-infrared extragalactic background light anisotropy
New EBL anisotropy measurements from a specialized sounding rocket experiment at 1.1 and 1.6 micrometers are reported, associated with an EBL intensity that is comparable to the background from known galaxies measured through number counts and therefore a substantial contribution to the energy contained in photons in the cosmos.
HerMES: deep number counts at 250 μm, 350 μm and 500 μm in the COSMOS and GOODS-N fields and the build-up of the cosmic infrared background
Aims. The Spectral and Photometric Imaging REceiver (SPIRE) onboard the Herschel space telescope has provided confusion limited maps of deep fields at 250 μm, 350 μm, and 500 μm, as part of the
We quantify the fraction of the cosmic infrared background (CIB) that originates from galaxies identified in the UV/optical/near-infrared by stacking 81,250 (~35.7 arcmin^(–2)) K-selected sources
HerMES: dust attenuation and star formation activity in ultraviolet-selected samples from z ∼ 4 to ∼ 1.5
We study the link between observed ultraviolet (UV) luminosity, stellar mass and dust attenuation within rest-frame UV-selected samples at z ∼ 4,  ∼ 3 and ∼1.5. We measure by stacking at 250, 350 and
Detection of B-mode polarization in the cosmic microwave background with data from the South Pole Telescope.
The first detection of gravitational lensing B modes is presented, using first-season data from the polarization-sensitive receiver on the South Pole Telescope (SPTpol), and the correlation has an amplitude and scale dependence consistent with theoretical expectations and is robust with respect to analysis choices.
