ALMA2030: Development study to develop new SIS process kicks off

Published: 03 Dec 2020

A new development study, led by the Group for Advanced Receiver Development (GARD) at Chalmers University in Gothenburg, will develop new processes to fabricate small size Superconductor Insulator Superconductor (SIS) junctions, which are at the heart of the ALMA receivers

ALMA2030: Development study to design a wideband 200-400 GHz cold cartridge demonstrator kicks off

Published: 02 Dec 2020

A new development study, led by the Group for Advanced Receiver Development (GARD) at Chalmers University in Gothenburg, will complement the SIS process study to investigate the impact of a significant increase in the IF bandwidth on all the receiver components. 

Discover the new improvements and features of the ALMA Science Archive

Published: 24 Nov 2020

The recent software releases brought several new features and improvements in the ALMA Science Archive (ASA) which are now ready to be discovered.

I-TRAIN #1: Imaging with the ALMA Pipeline

Published: 23 Nov 2020

The European ARC Network is offering an online training on the ALMA Science Pipeline on December 4, 2020, 11:00 CET [Zoom link]. In this training session participants will learn how to run the ALMA Science Pipeline for their own scientific purposes. They will be guided on how to tweak different parameters of the pipeline tasks to produce cleaned data cubes from publicly available ALMA data. This will allow users to obtain products that are tailored to the specific requirements of their science projects.

 

I-TRAIN #2: ALMA Science Archive update and ARI-L

Published: 22 Nov 2020

The European ARC Network is offering a topical training on some recently added functionality of the ALMA Science Archive like access to individual files, the CARTA remote visualization and the new ALMA VO services. The training session will be on December 15, 2020, 11:00 CET [Google link]. An overview over the European ALMA development project ARI-L will follow. ARI-L has already delivered over 74000 science FITS files to the ALMA Science Archive completing the existing ALMA products for Cycles 2-4.

I-TRAIN #3: UVMultiFit

Published: 21 Nov 2020

The European ARC Network is offering an online training on UVMultiFit on January 15, 2021, 11:00 CET [Zoom link]. The tool UVMultiFit is a versatile library for fitting models directly to visibility data. Visibility fitting can be a powerful method to analyze interferometric data and extract source information without the need to process image deconvolution. During this training session users will learn how to use this tool on real, publicly available ALMA data.

2020 November Status of the ALMA recovery process

Published: 20 Nov 2020

Dear colleagues,

With the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to impact our lives around the world, everyone at ALMA hopes that you and your families are staying safe and healthy. The pandemic situation in Chile is remaining stable and over the past few weeks ALMA staff have been moving forward with ALMA’s plan to recover the telescope array in the Atacama, as announced on October 1st, 2020.

The First 60000 ARI-L Images are Now Available in the ALMA Science Archive

Published: 14 Nov 2020

The first 60000 data cubes and continuum images generated by the Additional Representative Images for Legacy (ARI-L) ALMA development project are now available to download from the ALMA Science Archive (ASA). In addition to the primary-beam-corrected images, the released products also include the primary beams, and mask for all targets and calibrators of more than 1200 Cycle 3 and 4 datasets.
