Paper Abstract

We present the latest results obtained with the wide-field submillimeter camera ArTeMiS that is operating on APEX since July 2013. This camera is presently equipped with 1870 pixels at 350 μm and 800 pixels at 450 μm simultaneously. ArTéMiS is a PI-camera open to the ESO and Swedish community. It has already taken a part in the 2016-2017 scientific results of APEX. So far, it offers the best performance in terms of mapping speed at 350 and 450 μm in the southern hemisphere.

Major improvements of the APEX telescope have been achieved at the end of 2017, requiring a complete removal of the instruments in the C-Cabin. In the meantime, the ArTeMiS camera has been kept safe at the ALMA Operations Support Facility (OSF) building. We took advantage of this re-installation to improve a bit more the optical coupling of detectors. We present here the present status of the camera.

Since APEX operation is now guaranteed until the end of 2022, our prospects are to install in time new detectors presently developed at CEA/Léti in the frame of R&D developments made for the future SPICA space mission. Those detectors, which have new polarization capabilities, are also presented.
