PHANGS HST & JWST

Physics at High Angular resolution in Nearby GalaxieS

About PHANGS HST & JWST

PHANGS (Physics at High Angular resolution in Nearby GalaxieS) has conducted the principal ALMA Large Program for nearby galaxies, and has obtained CO (2-1) maps for a complete sample of 74 spiral galaxies. HST and JWST imaging spanning from the near-UV to 21 microns for all 74 galaxies is being obtained through five PHANGS programs:

The combination of these surveys provide the first dataset to enable the multi-phase, multi-scale study of star formation across spiral galaxies in the local universe, from star clusters and molecular clouds to galactic disks.

PHANGS-JWST ApJL First Results Special Issue

 

PHANGS JWST First Results JWST is revolutionizing fields across astrophysics, and chief among them is the study of the earliest stages of star formation and the dusty interstellar medium (ISM). On February 2023, a special issue of the Astrophysical Journal Letters was printed to celebrate the first results.

JWST Cycle 1 Treasury Program

A JWST Cycle 1 Treasury Program to image 19/38 galaxies with full coverage by ALMA/MUSE/HST with NIRCAM and MIRI has been approved. A January 2022 article entitled Capturing All That Glitters in Galaxies With NASA’s Webb provides an overview of the PHANGS-JWST survey understandable to the public.

PHANGS-CAT Data Release 1 (2022)

 

PHANGS-CAT DR1 at MAST provides catalogs for compact clusters and a separate set of catalogs for multi-scale associations for five galaxies: NGC 1433, NGC 1566, NGC 1559, NGC 3351, and NGC 3627. Please see the PHANGS-CAT site at MAST for more information.

PHANGS-HST Data Releases 1 & 2 (2021)

 

PHANGS-HST DR1 & DR2 at MAST provides imaging for all 38 galaxies in the sample, as well as visualization tools, and neural network models for star cluster morphological classification. Please see the PHANGS HST site at MAST for more information.

HST and ALMA: Probing the life-cycle of star formation regions

PHANGS-HST and PHANGS-ALMA observations of the nearby spiral galaxy NGC1559. The high angular resolution afforded by HST allows for the identification of individual young star clusters that have just emerged from their birth cloud as seen by ALMA.
