MagNIFIES/GMTNIRS - the power and promise of a new generation of near-infrared high resolution spectroscopy

Tuesday, November 6, 2018 - 4:00pm
Dr. Alycia Weinberger (DTM) and Prof. Daniel Jaffe (UT Austin)

MagNIFIES is the Magellans' Near-Infrared Five-band Immersion grating Efficient Spectrograph, a project to bring the GMT instrument GMTNIRS to Magellan before GMT needs it.

Resolving the extended stellar halos of nearby galaxies: the future of Near-Field Cosmology

Thursday, March 15, 2018 - 1:00pm
Prof. Denija Crnojevic

I will present results from the wide-field Panoramic Imaging Survey of Centaurus and Sculptor (PISCeS): the resolved stellar halos of two nearby galaxies (the spiral NGC253 and the elliptical Centaurus A, D~3.7 Mpc) are investigated with Magellan/Megacam.
