Arcetri Radioastronomy Group

At Arcetri a Radio Astronomy observative and instrumental group is active. The main interest of the observative group is the study of molecular lines and continuum emission in star forming regions. A catalog of all known maser sources north of -30 degrees is kept updated and is made available to anyone interested. The instrumental group works in close cooperation with the Radio Astronomy Institute of the Italian CNR (Bologna), that operates the Medicina and Noto VLBI Radiotelescopes.

The group is involved  in the design phase for the Atacama Large Miillimeter Array, a (sub)millimeter interferometer with a large collecting area (about 10000 m2). This project is expected to be finished in the year 2010 and results from the coordinated effort of the European and American scientific community.
