The UHH Research Park includes the headquarters for the East Asian Observatory, the Caltech Submillimeter Observatory, Subaru, Gemini, UKIRT, the Smithsonian Submillimeter Array and the Institute for Astronomy, plus the astronomers at the University of Hawaii at Hilo. We are one of the major centres for astronomy in the world and encourage all visitors to the JCMT to take advantage of the proximity of these institutes, and give a seminar while in Hilo. Your talk will be advertised at each of the above institutes.

Upcoming Seminar: July 26th, 2pm (HST)

Statistical characteristics of Harp receptors

Location: EAO Office, Hilo

Taishi Nammoto

HARP (Heterodyne Array Receiver Program) is a receiver which consists of 16 different receptors. Currently 13 receptors are operational. These receptors are aimed at mapping large areas. The purpose of my project is to enhance the recognition of normal TRX (receiver noise temperature). This allows operators and scientists to figure out whether the receiver works properly or not. Also, characteristics of TRX variation help them to discuss how to deal with issues for operation. In this talk, I’ll analyse the relation between TRX and Lo (Local Oscillator) frequency based on data collected from 2015 to 2019. Specifically some interesting features found on the data will be discussed.

Where and How:

EAO seminars are (usually) held in the second floor conference room at the East Asia Observatory, 660 N. A’ohoku Place, Hilo, Hawaii. Please note that access to EAO is possible only through the main entrance (through the side doors facing Subaru).

We stream all of our seminars through the Zoom video conferencing application. If you would like to view the seminar via Zoom, links are sent out on the seminar mailing list (see below) or you may contact the helpdesk in advance of the talk and we will make sure that the option is available to you.

A full list of past seminar speakers can be found below for the current and previous years. These pages also contain links to PDF copies of the seminar slides, video recordings of the seminars, and other materials, where available.
