"Design and Simulation of Aperture Arrays for Radio Astronomy: the SKA-LOW telescope", com o Distinguished Lecturer, Prof. David Davidson
Na próxima quarta-feira, dia 04 de novembro às 08h30 haverá a palestra "Design and Simulation of Aperture Arrays for Radio Astronomy: the SKA-LOW telescope", com o Distinguished Lecturer, Prof. David Davidson no dia 4 Novembro as 8h30 (GMT -3), Curtin University/Austrália
In radio astronomy, an aperture array is a phased array with a direct view of the sky (as opposed to a phased array feed). Work towards the Square Kilometre Array (SKA)-LOW radio telescope, which covers much of the VHF radio band, has prompted extensive research on such systems over the last two decades, including the MWA and LOFAR telescopes. Design considerations and aspects of the SKA-LOW telescope, to be deployed in Western Australia, will be outlined. Presently, each of the 512 SKA-LOW “stations” is to comprise 256 dual-polarized log-periodic antennas. After discussing some general aspects of SKA, and SKA-Low, this presentation will describe in some detail the numerical modelling of station patterns using embedded element patterns, which fully capture the complex mutual coupling environment of each antenna. The implications for SKA-LOW will conclude the paper.
A organização é do Capítulo IEEE APS da Seção Nordeste – Capítulo Estudantil APS UFCG, sob a coordenação do prof. Dr. Alexandre Jean René Serres.
