Oxford Martin Workshop on Intensity Mapping

Past Event

23 November 2012, 10:30am - 6:30pm

St Anne's College
Woodstock Road, Oxford, OX2 6HS

This workshop is hosted by the Programme on Computational Cosmology, an Oxford Martin School Programme and the Department of Astrophysics

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 to discuss the state of play of this exciting field. 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.

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, …)
