WiggleZ

(a survey aiming at mapping dark energy)

WiggleZ is a survey aimed at Dark Energy that was conducted from 2006 to 2011 with the Anglo-Australian Telescope (AAT) using the AAOmega Spectrograph with the 2dF camera. It measured Redshifts (z) for a quarter million blue emission line galaxies (ELG) covering redshifts from 0.2 to 1.0, selected from Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX).
