与意大利空间局科学数据中心(简称ASDC)Paolo Giommi教授讨论会

  • 20131118日,意大利空间局科学数据中心(简称ASDCPaolo Giommi教授访问高能所,报告介绍了意大利空间局科学数据中心(ASDC),并报告利用、归档不同天文台的数据资源,建立虚拟天文台的方法。另外,在ASDC虚拟天文台的应用方面,报告Blazar多波段观测的研究成果。
  • 报告后应地面系统科学应用部分邀请参加其讨论,就地面应用系统建设中的具体问题进行讨论,主要内容包括:数据产品分级、HXMT宇宙本底研究、地面标定以及在轨测试等。Paolo教授将讨论中的问题,比如国外卫星Swift或者Nustar对数据产品级别的定义与HXMT不同之处、Swift/XRT的标定相关的内容及其CALDB是如何组织和使用,相关的标定软件(包括模拟部分和用户标定软件)是如何实现等。兵答应提供Nustar等相关的技术文档。Paolo认为所有卫星都应该做PHAPI的转换,这一直是一个困扰大多数卫星数据产品和标定的问题,具体的问题解决等会在以后邮件中交流。Paolo教授对于地面系统建设的方案给与高度评价,并邀请派人赴意,或组织具体工作人员人来华讨论和指导。

报告人简介:
Paolo Giommi is a highly experienced astrophysicist, author or co-author of over 800 publications (340 in refereed journals) with a total of more than 24,500 citations and an index of 77 (data from Google scholar). Currently he works at the Italian Space Agency (ASI) where he acts as the director of the ASI Science Data Center (ASDC), a world-class space data facility supporting several astrophysics, cosmology, space exploration and astro-particle space missions.
His scientific activities have been mostly focused in the area of extragalactic astrophysics since the beginning of his career, which started in the field of AGN surveys using data from the Einstein and EXOSAT X-ray astronomy satellites. A good fraction of his scientific efforts has been dedicated to multi-frequency studies of blazars, an activity that resulted in many highly cited publications, making Paolo one of the world experts in the field. Other important topics in his scientific interests are Gamma-ray bursts and cosmology. The latest major scientific activity is the coordination of multi-frequency observations of samples of extragalactic sources requiring a large number of simultaneous observations carried out with space (Planck, Swift and Fermi) and ground based facilities.
He was awarded the "Bruno Rossi Prize" four times, in 1998, 2007, 2011 and 2012 as a key player of the BeppoSAX, Swift, Fermi and AGILE teams.
