First results from AAVS 0.5: A prototype array for next-generation radio astronomy
MetadataShow full item record
This paper provides an overview of the Aperture Array Verification System 0.5 (AAVS 0.5), co-located and operated in conjunction with the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) near the Australian SKA core site. AAVS 0.5 is based on log-periodic antennas of a type potentially useful in next-generation low-frequency arrays such as SKA-low. We report on our progress by discussing results obtained thus far as well as test plans for the near future. A number of lessons learned will be presented, demonstrating that hands-on experience constitutes an essential knowledge-base in the pre-construction phase of a radio-telescope such as the SKA.

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 ...
