Some Problems and Instrumental Features of Submillimeter Astronomy

Part of the International Astronomical Union / Union Astronomique Internationale book series (IAUH, volume 1)


Modern astronomy includes optical, ultraviolet, infrared and, in recent years, radio, γ-ray, and X-ray astronomy. Such a classification is justified to a certain degree. In fact, the difference in wavelength ranges causes a distinction in the methods and techniques of receiving radiation. Also, the solution of specific problems requires observation in different wavelength regions. In this respect it is possible to describe a new astronomical branch, the submillimeter one.
