ADS: Aravena et al. 2013 arXiv: Aravena et al. 2013 New stars form out of gas which is mostly molecular hydrogen, but unfortunately it’s really difficult to observe directly. Instead, we use other molecules as tracers of the molecular gas. The most famous tracer is the lowest rotational transition of carbon monoxide, CO(1-0), which can […]
ADS: Vieira et al. 2013 arXiv: Vieira et al. 2013 This paper, along with papers by Yashar Hezaveh and Axel Weiss, were published at the same time. This paper, published in Nature, gave an overview and synthesis of the two ALMA projects our group was awarded in Cycle 0 which showed that 1) basically every […]
ADS: Hezaveh et al. 2013b arXiv: Hezaveh et al. 2013b This paper, another part of the trio we published at the same time, describes the initial results of our ALMA Cycle 0 program to take one-minute snapshot images of a large number of SPT galaxies. While we were pretty sure the galaxies were lensed, we […]

ADS: Weiss et al. 2013 arXiv: Weiss et al. 2013 This paper describes the results from an ALMA Cycle 0 program to measure the redshifts of the SPT galaxies. We did this by observing each galaxy in almost all of ALMA’s 3mm band (Band 3), looking to detect rotational transitions of carbon monoxide. Since the […]
ADS: Vieira et al. 2010, Mocanu et al. 2013 arXiv: Vieira et al. 2010, Mocanu et al. 2013 The Vieira et al. 2010 catalog is available here. These papers describe the statistics of the point sources found in the South Pole Telescope survey, and how to pick out distant, dusty galaxies from these catalogs. Since […]
