Unveiling the Hidden Universe

Imaging and polarimetry with TolTEC has the promise of linking up large scale measurements by instruments such as Planck, ACT, and SPT with the detailed investigations offered by ALMA. It is the sheer combination of sensitivity and angular resolution that makes these observations so powerful.

Astronomers not directly associated with the Large Millimeter Telescope institutions can be a part of the TolTEC Public Legacy Surveys that we will carry out starting in 2021.

TolTEC commissioning is coming up. The TolTEC Science Team has collectively come up with a set of commissioning proposals that test out various observing modes of the system. Take a look at the potential commissioning target list. All commissioning data products will be publicly available once they pass quality assurance.

Below we highlight some of the major surveys and survey science we hope to do. The unique capabilities of TolTEC allow the instrument to be used is a wide variety of studies that span nearly all of astronomy.
