Library Resource Guide: Dark Energy Survey/Dark Energy Camera (DECam)


The Dark Energy Survey (DES) is designed to probe the origin of the accelerating universe and help uncover the nature of dark energy by measuring the 14-billion-year history of cosmic expansion with high precision. More than 120 scientists from 23 institutions in the United States, Spain, the United Kingdom, Brazil, and Germany are working on the project. [from DES home page, darkenergysurvey.org]

The DES Collaboration includes the National Optical Astronomy Observatory (NOAO), which is operated by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA) under cooperative agreement with the National Science Foundation.

The Dark Energy Camera (DECam) used in the Dark Energy Survey is mounted on the Blanco 4-meter telescope at the Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory (CTIO), a division of NOAO.
