Oxford Martin Workshop on Intensity Mapping

23 Nov 2012 - 9:00am to 5:30pm
St Anne's College, Banbury Road, Oxford
Tsuzuki Lecture Theatre
Specialised / research interest

Over the last few years, there has been growing interest in using intensity mapping to study the large scale structure of the Universe. We will be holding an informal workshop on the topic at Oxford on Friday, 23rd of November (from 9:30AM to 5PM) to discuss the state of play of this exciting field. We plan to have short talks on

  • The theory and modelling behind total intensity surveys (dependence on cosmology, bias, …)
  • Experiments (incl. GBT, Effelsberg, BINGO, BAORadio, KAT7, SKA, CHIME, …)
  • Instrumentation (required specs, calibration issues, ...)
  • Data analysis issues (foregrounds, cross-correlations, …)
  • Simulations and pipelines (HI, CO, CII mass evolution, …)

From this meeting we hope to end up with a clear idea of how the field is progressing, what to expect over the next few years and a possible strategy for how to make these surveys happen.
