Monitoring stellar orbits around the Massive Black Hole in the Galactic Center
We present the results of 16 years of monitoring stellar orbits around the massive black hole in the center of the Milky Way, using high-resolution near-infrared techniques. This work refines ourExpand
The Photodetector Array Camera and Spectrometer (PACS) on the Herschel Space Observatory
The Photodetector Array Camera and Spectrometer (PACS) is one of the three science instruments on ESA's far infrared and submil- limetre observatory. It employs two Ge:Ga photoconductor arraysExpand
The distance to the center of the Galaxy
For nearly a century astronomers have expended considerable effort to determine the size of the Milky Way. This effort is worthwhile because any change in the value of the distance from the Sun toExpand
THE SINS SURVEY: SINFONI INTEGRAL FIELD SPECTROSCOPY OF z ∼ 2 STAR-FORMING GALAXIES*
We present the Spectroscopic Imaging survey in the near-infrared (near-IR) with SINFONI (SINS) of high-redshift galaxies. With 80 objects observed and 63 detected in at least one rest-frame opticalExpand
Sinfoni in the galactic center : Young stars and infrared flares in the central light-month
We report on 75 mas resolution, near-IR imaging spectroscopy within the central 30 lt-days of the Galactic center, taken with the new adaptive optics-assisted integral-field spectrometer SINFONI onExpand
The two young star disks in the central parsec of the galaxy: properties, dynamics and formation
We report the definite spectroscopic identification of 40 OB supergiants, giants and main sequence stars in the central parsec of the Galaxy. Detection of their absorption lines have become possibleExpand
The galactic center massive black hole and nuclear star cluster
The Galactic Center is an excellent laboratory for studying phenomena and physical processes that may be occurring in many other galactic nuclei. The Center of our Milky Way is by far the closestExpand
High molecular gas fractions in normal massive star-forming galaxies in the young Universe
TLDR
A survey of molecular gas in samples of typical massive-star-forming galaxies at mean redshifts of about 1.2 and 2.3 reveals that distant star forming galaxies were indeed gas rich, and that the star formation efficiency is not strongly dependent on cosmic epoch. Expand
The Stellar Cusp around the Supermassive Black Hole in the Galactic Center
We analyze deep near-IR adaptive optics imaging (taken with NAOS/CONICA on the Very Large Telescope at the European Southern Observatory, Chile), as well as new proper-motion data of the nuclear starExpand
