PASJ Special Issue “Nobeyama 45 m telescope: Legacy Projects and Receiver FOREST” was published
Nobeyama 45-m radio telescope has been operated as a leading milli-meter radio telescope since 1982. It continuously provides observation efficiency and capability better than before by installation of state-of-art receivers as well as maintenance of the telescope. FOREST is the new multi-beam 100-GHz band SIS receiver. It has been available since April 2015 in legacy projects and January 2016 in open-use observations. FOREST is suitable for large-area mapping and simultaneous multi-line observation. It provides observation efficiency several times and more than former mapping observations. PASJ Special Issue “Nobeyama 45 m telescope: Legacy Projects and Receiver FOREST” was published in December 2019. The issue contains 21 papers with a focus on three 2014-2017 NRO legacy projects, “Star Formation project”, “COMING project”, and “FUGIN project”. These observation results and datasets aim at the foundation for future studies. It will be useful not only for observations using ALMA and other radio telescopes but also for observations in infrared and other wavelengths.
