This program uses ~700 hours per year on three of the telescopes operated by the Small and Moderate Aperture Research Telescope System (SMARTS) at Cerro Tololo Interamerican Observatory (CTIO) in Chile to observe all public Large Area Telescope (LAT) monitored blazars that are accessible from Chile. The data generated is used to study the relationship between the emission peak in optical/IR bandpasses and the public Fermi gamma-ray emission. Data and results from the SMARTS telescopes are made public on a timescale comparable to that of the LAT data on these sources on this webpage.

Fermi/SMARTS Use Policy

The data on this site are public, and may be used by other investigators. We ask that you inform our group by email to glast@yale.edu of any use you intend to make of the data, and send copies of any resulting publications, including telegrams. Data should be described as coming from the Yale Fermi/SMARTS project, and a reference to this site should be included.
