Paper Abstract

The ArTeMiS submillimetric camera will observe simultaneously the sky at 450, 350 and 200 μm using 3 different focal planes made of 2304, 2304 and 1152 bolometric pixels respectively. This camera will be mounted in the Cassegrain cabin of APEX, a 12 m antenna located on the Chajnantor plateau, Chile. To realize the bolometric arrays, we have adapted the Silicon processing technology used for the Herschel-PACS photometer to account for higher incident fluxes and longer wavelengths from the ground. In addition, an autonomous cryogenic system has been designed to cool the 3 focal planes down to 300 mK. Preliminary performances obtained in laboratory with the first of 3 focal planes are presented. Latest results obtained in 2009 with the P-ArTeMiS prototype camera are also discussed, including massive protostellar cores and several star forming regions that have been clearly identified and mapped.
