We discuss in this paper the problem of the Anomalous Microwave Emission (AME) in the light of ongoing or future observations to be performed with the largest fully steerable radio telescope in the world. High angular resolution observations of the AME will enable astronomers to drastically improve the knowledge of the AME mechanisms as well as the interplay between the different constituents of the interstellar medium in our galaxy. Extragalactic observations of the AME have started as well…

Detailed study of the microwave emission of the supernova remnant 3C 396
We have observed the supernova remnant 3C~396 in the microwave region using the Parkes 64-m telescope. Observations have been made at 8.4 GHz, 13.5 GHz, and 18.6 GHz and in polarisation at 21.5 GHz.
Accretion in strong field gravity with eXTP
In this paper we describe the potential of the enhanced X-ray Timing and Polarimetry (eXTP) mission for studies related to accretion flows in the strong field gravity regime around both stellar-mass

Probing the origin of the microwave anomalous foreground
The galactic anomalous microwave emission detected between 10 and 90 GHz is a major foreground to CMB fluctuations. Well correlated to dust emission at 100 $\mu$m, the anomalous emission is
COSMOSOMAS observations of the cosmic microwave background and Galactic foregrounds at 11 GHz: evidence for anomalous microwave emission at high Galactic latitude
We present observations with the new 11-GHz radiometer of the COSMOSOMAS experiment at the Teide Observatory (Tenerife). The sky region between 0°≤ RA ≤ 360° and 26°≤ Dec. ≤ 49° (ca. 6500 deg2) was
ANOMALOUS MICROWAVE EMISSION FROM THE H II REGION RCW175
We present evidence for anomalous microwave emission in the RCW175 H ii region. Motivated by 33 GHz 13′ resolution data from the Very Small Array (VSA), we observed RCW175 at 31 GHz with the Cosmic
THE DETECTION OF ANOMALOUS DUST EMISSION IN THE NEARBY GALAXY NGC 6946
We report on the Ka-band (26–40 GHz) emission properties for 10 star-forming regions in the nearby galaxy NGC 6946. From a radio spectral decomposition, we find that the 33 GHz flux densities are
Planck early results. XX. New light on anomalous microwave emission from spinning dust grains
Anomalous microwave emission (AME) has been observed by numerous experiments in the frequency range ~10–60 GHz. Using Planck maps and multi-frequency ancillary data, we have constructed spectra for
Detection of anomalous microwave emission in the perseus molecular cloud with the cosmosomas experiment
We present direct evidence for anomalous microwave emission in the Perseus molecular cloud, which shows a clear rising spectrum from 11 to 17 GHz in the data from the COSMOSOMAS experiment. By
Very Small Array observations of the anomalous microwave emission in the Perseus region
The dust complex G159.6-18.5 in the Perseus region has previously been observed with the {COSMOSOMAS} experiment on angular scales of {\textasciitilde}1??,and was found to exhibit anomalous microwave
