The first SZE signal with the 7-element AMiBA
The Subaru weak lensing mass map (white contour) is overlaid on top of the AMiBA SZE measurement (color map) for the cluster Abell 2142
A 2-element prototype system was tested on the Mauna Loa site from 2002 to 2004.
The AMiBA receiver with the vacuum chamber removed
AMiBA dedication
AMiBA was dedicated in October 2006
The second phase of AMiBA consisting of thirteen 1.2m antennas was completed at the end of 2009

Research Interests

I have been working in the field of observational cosmology and am especially interested in the constraints coming from structure growth and abundance of galaxy clusters. Being the largest gravitationally bound objects in the universe, galaxy clusters were thought to be dominated by gravity and considered a simpler type of object, hence its power in cosmological studies. To achieve precision cosmology, however, the environment and history of the physical processes that took place in clusters became important. Be it optical, X-ray, or radio, panchromatic observations provide clues to help us understand clusters. In this light, I have also dedicated a lot of my time bringing out the best quality of data from the AMiBA project, which studies the hot gas within galaxy clusters through the Sunyaez-Zel'dovich effect.
