Abstract: We observed Sagittarius A*(Sgr A*) and the surrounding area at 230 and 340 GHz with ALMA in the interval of 14 months to demonstrate the possibility of a new method of search for IMBHs in the Galactic center region. The angular resolutions are ∼0.''03 at 230 GHz and ∼0.''10 at 340 GHz, respectively. The well-known infrared objects including IRS16 cluster, IRS13E complex, IRS21 cluster and many independent IR stars have been first detected in the sub-mm continuum maps. After subtracting the effect for crowding stars by insufficient angular resolution, we determined the proper motions referencing for Sgr A* of these stars. The proper motions are almost consistent with results from previous observations.
