Abstract / Description:The ALESS survey is an ALMA Cycle 0 study of ~ 100 luminous high-redshift ultraluminous infrared galaxies in the Extended Chandra Deep Field South (ECDFS), one of the best-studied cosmological deep fields accessible from the southern hemisphere. These galaxies were originally selected based on their bright emission in the submillimetre continuum (so-called submillimetre galaxies, or SMGs) through observations using the APEX bolometer camera LABOCA. Compared to the single-dish LABOCA data, the interferometric ALMA data provide a positional accuracy that is nearly two orders of magnitude higher. The ALMA data thus enable galaxy identifications that were previously impossible, and so remove many of the biases inherent in previous studies of SMGs to give us our first unbiased view of a large sample of this important galaxy population.
