  • Environmental effects on galaxy evolution in a z=5.2 proto-cluster

    Galaxy clusters are the most massive gravitationally bound structures in the Universe and they play a key role in our understanding of structure formation and galaxy evolution. The particular conditions of these high density environments can have a significant effect on the evolution of galaxies. Previous studies have reported systematic

  • Mapping, resolving and penetrating into the dusty Spiderweb protocluster with unqiue Pa-beta imaging

    We propose to conduct a unique and very efficient Pa-beta imaging (1.4hrs science time!) of the best-studied galaxy cluster in formation, called "Spiderweb" protocluster, at z=2.16, with the NIRCam F405N filter. Our primary goal is to map the entire star formation activities across this starbursting protocluster, and within individual galaxies

  • Revealing Low Luminosity Active Galactic Nuclei (ReveaLLAGN)

    JWST will be the most sensitive tool ever built for studying the accretion onto supermassive black holes (SMBHs) at the centers of galaxies. While quasars and bright active galactic nuclei (AGN) provide spectacular examples of this accretion, a vast majority of galaxies have black holes accreting at much lower rates. Although these low luminosity

  • Searching for the Alpha-Abundance Bimodality in the M31 Disk

    The recent era of large, ground-based abundance surveys has unraveled the chemical structures of our Milky Way galaxy. The most striking abundance feature is the alpha-abundance bimodality. The low-alpha stars are younger (1-8 Gyr) while the high-alpha stars are older (8-12 Gyr) and have a thicker distribution. There are a number of different

  • The Ring Nebula as a laboratory for the interaction of molecules, PAHs and dust in strong UV radiation fields

    We propose to observe the Ring Nebula, NGC 6720, at unprecedented spatial resolution and spectral sensitivity using MIRI, NIRSpec and NIRCam, with the aim of measuring and analyzing the emission from a range of atomic, molecular and particulate components commonly found in astrophysical environments. We will use this planetary nebula (PN) as an

  • TOI-178: the best laboratory for testing planetary formation theories

    The atmospheric characterisation of multiple exoplanets in the same system can provide a window into the processes that underpinned their formation and evolution. The planetary C/O ratios are of particular interest as they encode information about where the planet formed with respect to different ice lines, but precise measurements of this using
