Determination of Noise Temperature and Beam Modelling of an Antenna Array with Example Application using MWA
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis contains the tools for characterizing antenna arrays in a mutually coupled environment which includes phased arrays. Using the formulations derived, it enables the calculation of realized area, receiver noise temperature, radiation efficiency and sensitivity. The proposed formulation presented was rigorously verified using both electromagnetic simulation and data collected from astronomical observations showing excellent agreement. As an example application, we characterized the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) tile which forms the overall MWA radio telescope.

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 ...
