ALMA pads and baselines

Here is a radial logarithmic plot showing all pad names and the Cycle 5 configuration 10.

ALMA baseline lengths

  • Computed from the alma.outXX.cfg files in /usr/lib64/casapy/data/alma/simmos/ using 3D Pythagorean formula on the UTM coordinates, suitable for distances up to tens of km
    • (on a Mac: /Applications/CASA.app/Contents/Resources/casa-data/alma/simmos/)
  • For a plot of beamsize vs. configuration number, see this casaguide page
