Observations at 14.2 to 17.9 GHz made with the Arcminute Microkelvin Imager (AMI) Small Array towards 14 Lynds dark nebulae with a resolution of ≈2 arcmin are reported. These sources are selected from the Submillimetre Common-User Bolometre Array (SCUBA) observations of Visser, Richer & Chandler as small angular diameter clouds well matched to the synthesized beam of the AMI Small Array. Comparison of the AMI observations with radio observations at lower frequencies with matched uv-plane… Expand
High-resolution AMI Large Array imaging of spinning dust sources: spatially correlated 8 µm emission and evidence of a stellar wind in L675
We present 25 arcsec resolution radio images of five Lynds Dark Nebulae (L675, L944, L1103, L1111 and L1246) at 16 GHz made with the Arcminute Microkelvin Imager (AMI) Large Array. These objects wereExpand
Modelling the spinning dust emission from LDN 1780
We study the anomalous microwave emission (AME) in the Lynds Dark Nebula (LDN) 1780 on two angular scales. Using available ancillary data at an angular resolution of 1 degree, we construct an SEDExpand
Characterizing extragalactic anomalous microwave emission in NGC 6946 with CARMA
Using 1 cm and 3 mm observations from the Combined Array for Research in Millimeter-wave Astronomy and 2 mm observations from the Goddard IRAM Superconducting 2 Millimeter Observer observations, weExpand
Evidence for anomalous dust-correlated emission at 8 GHz
In 1969 Edward Conklin measured the anisotropy in celestial emission at 8 GHz with a resolution of 16.2 degrees and used the data to report a detection of the CMB dipole. Given the paucity of 8 GHzExpand
Observations of free–free and anomalous microwave emission from LDN 1622 with the 100 m Green Bank Telescope
LDN 1622 has previously been identified as a possible strong source of dust-correlated anomalous microwave emission (AME). Previous observations were limited by resolution meaning that the radioExpand
Planck intermediate results: XV: A study of anomalous microwave emission in Galactic clouds
Anomalous microwave emission (AME) is believed to be due to electric dipole radiation from small spinning dust grains. T he aim of this paper is a statistical study of the basic properties of AMEExpand
