Spectra and Polarization In Cutouts of Extragalactic sources from RACS

SPICE-RACS is an extension of the observatory project RACS to analyse linearly polarised emission. Whilst remaining an observatory project, the SPICE-RACS project is managed in collaboration between POSSUM and RACS.

The aims of SPICE-RACS, and the definitions of the POSSUM-RACS collaboration, are set out in the attached document.

Processing work on SPICE-RACS is lead by Thomson, Alec (S&A, Kensington WA) , in collaboration with the RACS, ASKAP, and POSSUM teams.
