Abstract

We present high-resolution 890 μm images of two 20 mJy submillimeter galaxies, SMM J123711+622212 and MIPS J142824.0+352619, obtained using the Submillimeter Array (SMA). Using submillimeter interferometric observations with an angular resolution of 25, the coordinates of these high-redshift sources are determined with an accuracy of 02. The new SMA data on SMM J123711+622212 reveal an unresolved submillimeter source offset to the east by 08 from an optical galaxy found in deep HST images, suggesting either a large galaxy with a dusty central region or an interacting galaxy system. The SMA image of hyperluminous (LFIR = 3.2 × 1013 L) source MIPS J142824.0+352619 provides a firm upper limit to the source size of 12. This constraint provides evidence that the foreground lens is only weakly affecting the observed high far-infrared luminosity.
