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
SCUBA: A Common - user submillimetre camera operating on the James Clerk Maxwell telescope
SCUBA, the Submillimetre Common-User Bolometer Array, built by the Royal Observatory Edinburgh for the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope, is the most versatile and powerful of a new generation of
High-redshift star formation in the Hubble Deep Field revealed by a submillimetre-wavelength survey
In the local Universe, most galaxies are dominated by stars, with less than ten per cent of their visible mass in the form of gas. Determining when most of these stars formed is one of the central
A median redshift of 2.4 for galaxies bright at submillimetre wavelengths
Spectroscopic redshifts for ten submm galaxies that were identified using high-resolution radio observations are reported, suggesting a close relationship between the growth of massive black holes and luminous dusty galaxies in the present-day Universe.
An interferometric CO survey of luminous submillimetre galaxies
In this paper, we present results from an Institut de Radio Astronomie Millimetrique (IRAM) Plateau de Bure millimetre-wave Interferometer (PdBI) survey for carbon monoxide (CO) emission towards
Submillimeter Galaxies at z ~ 2: Evidence for Major Mergers and Constraints on Lifetimes, IMF, and CO-H2 Conversion Factor*
We report subarcsecond resolution IRAM PdBI millimeter CO interferometry of four z ~ 2 submillimeter galaxies (SMGs), and sensitive CO(3-2) flux limits toward three z ~ 2 UV/optically selected
High-resolution millimeter imaging of submillimeter galaxies
We present ~06 resolution IRAM PdBI interferometry of eight submillimeter galaxies at z ~ 2-3.4, where we detect continuum at 1 mm and/or CO lines at 3 and 1 mm. The CO 3-2/4-3 line profiles in five
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.
A survey of molecular gas in luminous sub-millimetre galaxies
We present the results from a survey of 12CO emission in 40 luminous sub-millimetre galaxies (SMGs), with 850-μm fluxes of S850 μm = 4–20 mJy, conducted with the Plateau de Bure Interferometer. We
The All-Wavelength Extended Groth Strip International Survey(AEGIS) Data Sets
In this the first of a series of Letters, we present a panchromatic data set in the Extended Groth Strip region of the sky. Our survey, the All-Wavelength Extended Groth Strip International Survey
