ALMA (Atacama Large Milimetre/Submilimetre Array) is an array of 66 high precision antennas located in the Atacama Desert in Chile. It acts as a powerful telescope, observing in the infrared and radio wavelengths. In this project, we study ALMA observational data on CR7 and look for Carbon emission lines.
Aims of the project:
- Understand how to use the reduced 3D cubes.
- Learning some basic tools.
- Measure limits on dust mass.
- Measure [CII] globally and per component.
- Look for [CII] emission elsewhere in the map (at different redshifts) and more importantly at a similar redshift.
- Quantify number density of [CII] clumps and compare with other similar ALMA maps: is it an over-dense region?
- Read on and interpret [CII] – look into other lines and explore predicting H2O lines given the CII detection and other properties.
