Tony Mroczkowski's Website
I am an Astronomer / (Sub)Millimeter Instrument Scientist at the European Southern Observatory
(ESO), working on ALMA development.
Scientifically, I work primarily on observations
of galaxy clusters through
the Sunyaev-Zel'dovich (SZ) effect.
Please see the SSR review.
The AtLAST Design Study was approved! See the site, atlast-telescope.org
and the news releases
A bit less recently, but ACA+ALMA Bullet SZ analysis
was a highlight in
and on the ALMA Science Portal
Here are some of the instruments and projects I work on or have worked on:
a 66-element mm/submm-wave interferometer and total power array in the Atacama desert in northern Chile.
I'm working (along with many others) to improve the mapping speed, to bring new bands online, and
to realise the ALMA 2030 Development Roadmap.
The Atacama Large Aperature Submillimeter Telescope, a community-driven effort
to realise a 50-meter class telescope in the Atacama desert. Currently no large (>12-meter)
submm/mm single-dish facilities exist in the southern hemisphere. AtLAST would significantly advance submm/mm science,
improving upon ALMA's mapping speed by over 5 orders of magnitude.
- MUSTANG2: a 90 GHz, 9" SZE imaging camera on the 100-meter Green Bank Telescope.
- ACT: The Atacama Cosmology Telescope is a 6-meter CMB and SZ survey telescope doing really cool things.
Here are my Orcid and Google Scholar pages:
