Partnership Opportunities with the Caltech Submillimeter Observatory

Dariusz Lis Jet Propulsion Laboratory

The Caltech Submillimeter Observatory (CSO) was constructed with NSF funding and has been fully operational since 1989, providing about 50% of the available observing time to the national and international communities.

Although NSF support of the CSO has now ended, the observatory continues its scientific operations as a partnership between Caltech/JPL and the East Asian Core Observatories Association, whose members are the Academia Sinica Institute of Astronomy and Astrophysics, the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan, the National Astronomical Observatory of China, and the Korean Astrophysics and Space Sciences Institute.

Institutions in the field of millimeter- and submillimeter-wavelength astronomy interested in future scientific or technical collaborations involving the use of the CSO are encouraged to contact the CSO Director, Prof. Sunil Golwala (golwala@caltech.edu), or Deputy Director, Dr. Darek Lis (dcl@caltech.edu).

More information about the CSO and the instrumentation available can be found on the CSO page.
