8 October 2004 Sub-mm-instrumentation: current projects at KOSMA/Universitat zu Koln
Author Affiliations +
The KOSMA group at the I. Physikalisches Institut der Universitat zu Koln combines expertise throughout a large part of the instrumentation and technologies as well as procedures and operations relevant for astronomical observations in the submm- and THz-spectral regime. This expertise is based on the long term heritage of operating the Kolner Observatorium fur Submillimeter Astronomie (KOSMA) with its 3m-telescope (Fig. 1) on Gornergrat near Zermatt, CH (since the year 2000, the observatory is operated jointly by the Universitat zu Koln and the Radioastronomisches Institut, Universitat Bonn). The experience gained by building and operating high frequency radio-astronomy equipment for KOSMA has made the Cologne group a competent partner in the instrumentation program for the airborne observatory SOFIA and for the space observatories SWAS and more recently Herschel/HIFI.
