TolTEC

(Sensitive infrared camera under construction for the LMT)

TolTEC is an a microwave camera under construction for the Large Millimeter Telescope. It will simultaneously image in three bands (150 GHz, 220 GHz, 280 GHz) using 7,000 KID detectors. It aims at high-speed surveying.

Construction is a NSF AST MSIP project, and to fulfill a condition, four surveys will be carried out and their data made public:
