First Data Release of the SINFONI Survey for Unveiling the Physics and the Effect of Radiative feedback (SUPER)
The first data release of the SINFONI Survey for Unveiling the Physics and the Effect of Radiative feedback (SUPER, Circosta et al. 2018; ESO Large Programme 196.A-0377, PI: Mainieri) is now available to the community on ESO Archive via the Science Portal or programmatically.
This release consists of 20 SINFONI cubes targeting z=2-2.5 Type-1 AGNs in the H (or H+K) band. The adaptive optics module was employed during the IFU observations, abating the effects of atmospheric turbulence down to a superb angular resolution of 0.2 arcsecond (corresponding to ~2 kpc at the AGN redshifts). In combination with the long exposures (of the order of 1-7 hour), the data provides 3D spatially resolved high-quality maps of the Hβ and [OIII] emission lines and of the star emission from the AGN host galaxies.
