Title: Possible Collaboration between Seoul National University and Subaru


1
Possible Collaboration between Seoul National
University and Subaru
  • Myungshin Im
  • (CEOU/Astronomy
  • Seoul National University)

2
Outline
  • Introduction of SNU Astronomy
  • Previous collaborations between SNU and Japan
  • Exploration of Future Collaborations

3
Seoul National University Astronomy
  • 11 Faculty Members (one Japanese, starting soon)
  • 1 Visiting Professor (Prof. Matsumoto)
  • 1-2 Research Professors
  • 6 Postdocs
  • gt50 Graduate Students
  • Research Center (CEOU 9-yr), Radio
    Observatory/Optical Observatory
  • Galaxy evolution/formation (M.G. Lee, M. Im),
    AGNs (M. Im, J. Woo), IR galaxies (H. M. Lee, M.
    Im, M.G. Lee), Large scale structures/halos (J.
    Lee), Stellar clusters (M. G. Lee, S. Lee),
    Stellar populations/stars (S. Lee, M. G. Lee),
    SNe remnants (B. C. Koo), Star formation (B. C.
    Koo, Y. Park), Radio instrumentation (Y. Park),
    Zodiacal light dust (S.S. Hong), Solar system
    (Ishiguro, Hong), the Sun (J. Chae)

4
Facilities
  • UKIRT 3.8-m Telescope (20 nights per year)
  • Maidanak 1.5-m Telescope (Uzbekistan, 2 months
    per year, SNU4kCAM)
  • 6.5m Radio Telescope on campus
  • Small Telescopes on campus
  • AKARI (ISAS/JAXA)

5
Surveys
  • SNUQSO (Seoul National University Bright Quasar
    Survey in Optical)
  • Bright quasar survey in the zone of avoidance
    PI Im
  • IMS (Intermediate-wide, Medium-deep Survey in
    NIR)
  • 150 square degree NIR imaging survey (23 AB
    mag PI Im)
  • QSONG (AKARI Spectroscopy Study of Quasars)
  • 2.5 5 micron NIR spectroscopy of z gt 3.4
    quasars (PI H. M. Lee, M. Im)

6
AKARI Collaboration
Software contribution (1 faculty several junior
scientists at ISAS always)
Scientific collaboration (Large surveys, Mission
programs)
Example North Ecliptic Pole (NEP) Survey (5.8
square degree) many core Japanese astronomers
(mostly ISAS) 3 key SNU astronomers (H. M.
Lee, M. G. Lee, M. Im)
  • OpticalNIR imaging (BRI JH)
  • Spectroscopic data (gt 1000 redshfits)
  • Papers (11 micron sources, etc)

Example 2 CLEVL (Cluster Evolution Study) PI H.
M. Lee (SNU), low-z (M. G. Lee), mid-z (Takagi),
high-z (Takagi/Watarai) Japanese/SNU
participants
7
Previous Current Subaru-related collaborations
  • Small projects
  • Stellar clusters (Arimoto M. G. Lee)
  • IC10 (Karoji, M. G. Lee, M. Im)
  • High-z galaxy, quasar search projects
  • (PIs Kashikawa, Hibon, Im)
  • AKARI-related (Takagi, Wada, Kodama, Hanami,
    etc SNU AKARI group)
  • Man Power
  • NAOJ postdoc (N. Hwang)

8
Future Collaboration
  • More small collaboration projects
  • Collaboration of large-scale programs, surveys
  • HSC? WFMOS? (AKARI)
  • Scientific projects Instrumentation
    projects
  • SNU can possibly lead such collaborations
    (e.g., CEOU resources)
  • Joint workshop
  • Exchange of research personnel (postdocs,
    students)
  • http//astro.snu.ac.kr

9
Possible ideas
  • Two of Astronomy faculties are GMT Korean science
    working group members (M. G. Lee, M. Im)
  • Discussion on projects on route to GMT era is
    on-going (Subaru project?)
  • CEOU is starting a survey project (8-years) and
    possibly instrument project
  • Funding available
  • 150 square degree NIR imaging survey

10
CEOU/Astronomy Projects
  • LBGs and star formation at high redshift
  • Proto-cluster of galaxies at z gt 2
  • Quasars (high redshift/low redshift)
  • Low redshift cluster of galaxies
  • AKARI imaging study of extragalactic fields
  • Fundamental plan of early-types
  • GRB follow-up observation
  • Y-band imaging survey
  • CCD Camera (4k x 4k camera, and a new camera with
    deep depletion chips)
