Published: 18 Aug 2016

If you wish to conduct a PhD in astronomy-astrophysics within one of the largest centres of astrophysical research in the world, which covers every subject from planets, stars, and galaxies to cosmology, you should seriously consider applying to the IMPRS studentship programme in Munich.

New release of ALMA Science Verification Data

Published: 17 Aug 2016

The new ALMA Science Verification (SV) release contains commissioning test data of quasars obtained during the long baseline campaigns in 2012, 2013 and 2014. The data were taken to study the stability of the relative amplitude and phase of the system and the atmosphere. See the ALMA announcement for more details and the ALMA SV page for a description of the datasets available.

Data Release of X-shooter Spectra of 100 3.5 < z < 4.5 QSOs

Published: 31 Jul 2016

High-quality echelle spectra of a homogeneous sample of 100 QSOs with redshifts between 3.5 and 4.5, covering the spectral range from 315 to 2500 nm, have been obtained in the course of the ESO observing programme "Quasars and their absorption lines: a legacy survey of the high-redshift Universe with VLT/X-shooter" (Programme 189.A-0424; PI Sebastien Lopez). This dataset represents the largest spectroscopic survey of high-redshift QSOs with simultaneous rest-frame UV/optical coverage to date, enabling a wide range of research topics, including intergalactic medium, active galactic nuclei and cosmology (Lopez et al. 2016).
