  • Sensitivity of Antenna Arrays for Long-Wavelength Radio Astronomy

    A number of new and planned radio telescopes will consist of large arrays of low-gain antennas operating at frequencies below 300 MHz. In this frequency regime, Galactic noise can be a significant or dominant contribution to the total noise. This, combined with mutual coupling between antennas, m...

  • The First Station of the Long Wavelength Array

    The Long Wavelength Array (LWA) will be a new multi-purpose radio telescope operating in the frequency range 10-88 MHz. Upon completion, LWA will consist of 53 phased array "stations" distributed over a region about 400 km in diameter in the state of New Mexico. Each station will consist of 256 p...
