The University of Tokyo Atacama Observatory (TAO) Project

Author(s): Mamoru Doi for TAO project

Presenter: Mamoru Doi (The University of Tokyo)

TAO project is to construct and operate a 6.5-m infrared-optical telescope at the summit of Cerro Chajnantor in northern Chile. Because of the highest altitude of the site as an astronomical observatory (5640m) in dry Atacama desert, new atmospheric windows in the infrared wavelength are open, which has been confirmed with observations of the 1-m miniTAO telescope. In this talk, overview of the project will be presented.
