SeFIRAA / Antarctic R&D
Submillimetre Far-InfraRed Astronomy from Antarctica

This page presents our activities for potential Antarctic Astronomy in the far-infrared (200-500 µm) regime of the electromagnetic spectrum. Technical realisation of experiments has been undertaken at CEA Saclay with IRFU/SIS and in collaboration with IPEV, Fizeau/Nice and UNSW/Sydney. Networking activity has been undertaken within ARENA, a European Commission Network, between 2006 and 2010.
