Call for Science Verification for the new APEX SEPIA Sideband-separated Band 9 Facility Receiver

Published: 14 Sep 2018

The first of the new APEX facility receivers has been successfully installed at the telescope in August 2018. This new band 9 facility receiver for SEPIA records both sidebands simultaneously, with very good sideband rejection at the level of >15 dB at all frequencies (>20 dB in most cases). To test these new capabilities with real scientific observations, all APEX partners are inviting short science verification (SV) proposals (nominally a few hours, with a maximum of 5 hours).
