Towards A New Probe of Dark Matter: HI Masses of Strong Spiral Lenses
PI: Sukanya Chakrabarti
Award: NASA 31695 Dates: 08/01/2016—07/31/2017; Funds: $24,353

Description

We will determine the atomic hydrogen masses of a sample of strong spiral lenses. This will allow us to determine which ones are rich in atomic hydrogen and we will subsequently obtain hydrogen atomic maps of that su-set of the SWELLS sample.
