JWST-MIRI Guaranteed Team

European Consortium of the MIRI instrument for the James Webb Space Telescope

The European Consortium of the MIRI instrument for the James Webb Space Telescope is participating in the multi-instrument NIRCam - NIRSpec - MIRI coordinated imaging and spectroscopic study of the Hubble Ultra Deep Field and surrounding fields. This JWST campaign will provide unique information about the formation and evolution of galaxies in the early universe, providing unique details of how the reionization of the universe was evolving from the recombination phase at z = 1100 to z = 6 (Epoch of Reionization). Furthermore, the unprecedented depth reached by MIRI imaging in the unexplored infrared domain will provide a brand-new picture of galaxy evolution through cosmic time.


CEERS

Cosmic Evolution Early Release Survey

The Cosmic Evolution Early Release Survey (CEERS; PI: S. L. Finkelstein) is one of the thirteen Early Release Science programs approved for the forthcoming James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) mission. CEERS will cover 100 squared arcminutes with imaging and spectroscopy, answering fundamental questions regarding two main fields of extragalactic astrophysics: "The First Light and Reionization" and "The Assembly of Galaxies". In particular, CEERS will push the search for primordial star-formation into the first 400 Myr after the Big Bang and identify the morphology of early galaxies to track their size and structural evolution.
