Phased Array Feeds for the Square Kilometre Array
MetadataShow full item record
A novel method to form multiple instantaneous beams on the sky with a reflector antenna is to employ a dense Phased Array Feed (PAF). This technology is currently being developed to greatly increase the survey speed of existing and future radio telescopes. This paper reviews the current state of PAF development projects for radio astronomy, the particular challenges and the potential for incorporation of PAFs into the ultimate radio survey instrument - the Square Kilometre Array.

Ion-Transfer Electrochemistry at Arrays of Nanointerfaces between Immiscible Electrolyte Solutions Confined within Silicon Nitride Nanopore MembranesScanlon, M.; Strutwolf, J.; Blake, A.; Iacopino, D.; Quinn, A.; Arrigan, Damien (2010)Ion transfer across interfaces between immiscible liquids provides a means for the nonredox electrochemical detection of ions. Miniaturization of such interfaces brings the benefits of enhanced mass transport. Here, the ...
The measurement of underwater acoustic noise radiated by a vessel using the vessel's own towed arrayDuncan, Alexander John (2003)The work described in this thesis tested the feasibility of using a towed array of hydrophones to: 1. localise sources of underwater acoustic noise radiated by the towvessel, 2. determine the absolute amplitudes of these ...
