Oral Presentation

Greenland Telescope for submm VLBI

Author(s): Makoto Inoue (ASIAA)

Presenter: Makoto Inoue (ASIAA)

ASIAA has been working on a submm telescope to set it up at the summit of Greenland. The Greenland Telescope (GLT) produces VLBI baselines longer than 9,000 km to ALMA in Chile and SMA in Hawaii, achieving 20 micro arc-sec resolution at 350 GHz toward the Super Massive Black Hole (SMBH) in M87. With this superb resolution, we are aiming at imaging the shadow of the M87 SMBH. As M87 has a prominent jet, the high resolution image will provide us a lot of information to investigate not only black hole but relativistic jet. The GLT also needs many items to collaborate, VLBI and single dish science, data processing, telescope system and operation, etc.
