Track: Calibration of instruments/telescopes before and after deployment
The Physics of the Accelerating Universe (PAU) Survey, being carried out by several Spanish institutions, will image an area of 100-200 square degrees in 6 broad and 40 narrow band optical filters. The narrow band filters will each cover 100 Angstroms, with the set spanning 4500-8500 Angstroms. The broad band set will consist of standard ugriZy filters. The team is building a camera (PAUCam) wh ... More

Track: Large Surveys and Missions (General)
The Dark Energy Survey (DES) is a 5000 sq deg grizY imaging survey to be conducted using a 3 sq deg (2.2deg-diameter) wide-field mosaic camera (the DECam) on the CTIO Blanco 4-m telescope. The DECam is currently in the process of installation and commissioning on the Blanco, with DES operations expected in the second half of 2012. The primary scientific goal of the DES is to constrain dark energ ... More

Track: Large Surveys and Missions (General)
The Dark Energy Survey (DES) will be taking the next step in probing the Dark Energy and understanding of the physics of cosmic acceleration. A step towards the photometric calibration of DES, is to have a quick, bright survey in the DES footprint (PreCam), using a prototype of Dark Energy Camera (DECam) CCDs and DES filter set. The objective of PreCam Survey is to create a network of calibrated ... More

Type: Paper Session: Session 2D
The Dark Energy Survey (DES) is designed to measure with unprecedented accuracy the time-independent and time-dependent parameters of the Dark Energy Equation of State. Utiliziing the Dark Energy Camera (DECam), DES will scan 1/4 of the southern hemisphere in order to detect millions of faint galaxies and thousands of supernovae. In order to measure the brightnesses of these objects accurately, ... More
