Large Scale Spectral Line Mapping of Galactic Regions with CCAT-prime

Simon, Robert

CCAT-prime is a 6-m submillimeter telescope that is being built on the top of Cerro Chajnantor (5600 m altitude) overlooking the ALMA plateau in the Atacama Desert. Its novel Crossed-Dragone design enables a large field of view without blockage and is thus particularly well suited for large scale surveys in the continuum and spectral lines targeting important questions ranging from star formation in the Milky Way to cosmology. On this poster, we focus on the large scale mapping opportunities in important spectral cooling lines of the interstellar medium opened up by CCAT-prime and the Cologne heterodyne instrument CHAI.
