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 AKARI/IRC mid-infrared all-sky survey
Context. AKARI is the first Japanese astronomical satellite dedicated to infrared astronomy. One of the main purposes of AKARI is the all-sky survey performed with six infrared bands between 9  μ mExpand
The Far-Infrared Surveyor (FIS) for AKARI
The Far-Infrared Surveyor (FIS) is one of two focal-plane instruments on the AKARI satellite. FIS has four photometric bands at 65, 90, 140, and 160 mu m, and uses two kinds of array detectors. TheExpand
TNOs are cool: a survey of the Trans-Neptunian Region — Herschel observations and thermal modeling of large samples of Kuiper Belt Objects
We present results of more than 50 TNOs (classical, Plutinos, SDO, detached) derived from Herschel ("TNOs are Cool"-project) and Spitzer observations: sizes, albedos, densities, dynamic group sampleExpand
Asteroids as far-infrared photometric standards for ISOPHOT
Asteroids are used as far-IR calibrators for the imaging photopolarimeter ISOPHOT on board the Infrared Space Observatory ISO. For the 10 selected objects we compiled a large uniform database(1) ofExpand
The Herschel ATLAS
The Herschel ATLAS is the largest open-time key project that will be carried out on the Herschel Space Observatory. It will survey 570 deg2 of the extragalactic sky, 4 times larger than all the otherExpand
“TNOs are Cool”: A survey of the trans-Neptunian region - X. Analysis of classical Kuiper belt objects from Herschel and Spitzer observations
Context. The Kuiper belt is formed of planetesimals which failed to grow to planets and its dynamical structure has been affected by Neptune. The classical Kuiper belt contains objects both from aExpand
"TNOs are cool": A survey of the trans-Neptunian region II. The thermal lightcurve of (136108) Haumea
Thermal emission from Kuiper Belt object (136108) Haumea was measured with Herschel-PACS at 100 and 160 micrometers for almost a full rotation period. Observations clearly indicate a 100-micrometerExpand
Hayabusa-2 mission target asteroid 162173 Ryugu (1999 JU3): Searching for the object's spin-axis orientation
The JAXA Hayabusa2 mission was approved in 2011 with launch planned for late 2014. Arriving at the asteroid (162173) 1999 JU_3 in 2018, it will survey it, land, and obtain surface material, thenExpand
Thermal infrared observations of asteroid (99942) Apophis with Herschel
The near-Earth asteroid (99942) Apophis is a potentially hazardous asteroid. We obtained far-infrared observations of this asteroid with the Herschel Space Observatory PACS instrument at 70, 100, andExpand
