AMiBA on Mauna Loa, Hawaii

The Array for Microwave Background Anisotropy (AMiBA) is a forefront instrument for research in cosmology. This project is led, designed, constructed, and operated by ASIAA, with major collaborations with NTU and ATNF. Additional contributions are also provided by the CMU, the NRAO, and the JPL. The AMiBA is sited on Mauna Loa in Hawaii, at an elevation of 3,400m to take advantage of higher atmospheric transparency and minimum radio frequency interference. The project involves extensive international and domestic scientific and technical collaborations. The AMiBA has deployed the initial 7-element interferometer in Hawaii. A dedication ceremony was held in October 2006 on Mauna Loa, with AS President Y. T. Lee and NTU President S.C. Lee presiding. Science operations have started. An expansion to the 13-element configuration is underway, with deployment and testing in 2008.
