      Doeleman, Sheperd S.; Weintroub, Jonathan; Rogers, Alan E. E.; Plambeck, Richard; Freund, Robert; Tilanus, Remo P. J.; Friberg, Per; Ziurys, Lucy M.; Moran, James M.; Corey, Brian; Young, Ken Harbour; Smythe, Daniel L.; Titus, Michael; Marrone, Daniel P.; Cappallo, Roger J.; Bock, Douglas C.-J.; Bower, Geoffrey C.; Chamberlin, Richard; Davis, Gary R.; Krichbaum, Thomas P.; Lamb, James; Maness, Holly; Niell, Arthur E.; Roy, Alan; Strittmatter, Peter; Werthimer, Daniel; Whitney, Alan R.; Woody, David (Nature Publishing Group, 2008)
      The cores of most galaxies are thought to harbour supermassive black holes, which power galactic nuclei by converting the gravitational energy of accreting matter into radiation. Sagittarius A* (Sgr A*), the compact source ...

J.; Titus, Michael; Weintroub, Jonathan; Wright, Melvyn; Young, Ken Harbour; Ziurys, Lucy M. (American Astronomical Society, 2013)
      We report results from five day very long baseline interferometry observations of the well-known quasar 3C 279 at 1.3mm (230 GHz) in 2011. The measured nonzero closure phases on triangles including stations in Arizona, ...
    • Persistent Asymmetric Structure of Sagittarius A* on Event Horizon Scales

      The Galactic Center black hole Sagittarius A* (Sgr A*) is a prime observing target for the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT), which can resolve the 1.3 mm emission from this source on angular scales comparable to that of the ...
    • Resolved magnetic-field structure and variability near the event horizon of Sagittarius A 

      Johnson, Michael D.; Fish, V. L.; Doeleman, Sheperd S.; Marrone, D. P.; Plambeck, R. L.; Wardle, J. F. C.; Akiyama, K.; Asada, K.; Beaudoin, C.; Blackburn, Lindy; Blundell, Raymond; Bower, G.

J.; Titus, M.; Vertatschitsch, L.; Weintroub, Jonathan; Wright, M.; Young, Ken Harbour; Zensus, J. A.; Ziurys, L. M. (American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2015)
      Near a black hole, differential rotation of a magnetized accretion disk is thought to produce an instability that amplifies weak magnetic fields, driving accretion and outflow. These magnetic fields would naturally give ...
