Abstract: Submillimeter Array observations of Orion-KL at ∼ 1′′ resolution in the 440 µm/690 GHz band reveal new insights about the continuum and line emission of the region. The 440 µm continuum flux density measurement from source I allows us to differentiate among the various proposed physical models: Source I can be well modeled by a “normal” protostellar SED consisting of a proton-electron free-free emission component at low frequencies and a strong dust component in the submillimeter bands. Furthermore, we find that the protostellar object SMA1 is clearly distinct from the hot core. The non-detection of SMA1 at cm and infrared wavelengths suggests that it may be one of the youngest sources in the entire Orion-KL region. The molecular line maps show emission mainly from the sources I, SMA1 and the hot core peak position. An analysis of the CH 3CN(37 K − 36 K) K-ladder ( K = 0...3) indicates a warm gas component of the order 600 ± 200K. In addition, we detect a large fraction ( ∼ 58%) of unidentified lines and discuss the difficulties of line identifications at these frequencies.
