The Mexico-UK Submillimetre Camera for AsTronomy (MUSCAT) is a 1. 1 mm receiver consisting of 1, 500 lumped-element kinetic inductance detectors (LEKIDs) for the Large Millimeter Telescope (LMT; Volc\'an Sierra Negra in Puebla, M\'exico).

Subsequently, with a re-imaging lens and a black body point source, the beams of every detector are mapped, obtaining a mean FWHM size of $\sim$3. 27 mm, close to the expected 3. 1 mm.

no code implementations30 Jun 2020 D. J. Eden, T. J. T. Moore, R. Plume, A. J. Rigby, J. S. Urquhart, K. A. Marsh, C. H. Peñaloza, P. C. Clark, M. W. L. Smith, K. Tahani, S. E. Ragan, M. A. Thompson, D. Johnstone, H. Parsons, R. Rani

The observed DGMF is a metric for the instantaneous clump-formation efficiency (CFE) in the molecular gas and a two-dimensional power-spectrum analysis of the DGMF reveals a break in slope at the approximate size scale of molecular clouds.
