Scientific paper

OASI (Italian acronym for Antarctic submillimeter infrared observatory), the first large (2.6 m diameter) infrared andmm telescope ever mounted in Antarctica is described. The telescope is devoted to the study of Cosmic Background Radiation (CBR) anisotropy at a very small angular scale (from a few arcmin to 1 degree). OASI is equipped with a 1.5 m diameter wobbling off axis paraboloid, the main purpose of which is to study the intermediate scale CBR anisotropy. Preliminary results on CBR anisotropy measurements and on the detection of diffuse mm dust emission are discussed.
