Latest Astronomical interferometer Stories
General Dynamics-built radio telescope antennas give scientists a microscopic view of the universe that is thousands of light years away. NEWTON, N.C., June 25, 2014
Observations of a nearby active galaxy using the Very Large Telescope Interferometer (VLTI) at ESO’s Paranal Observatory in Chile have shown astronomers something they hadn’t expected to see.
A team of astronomers at Jodrell Bank Observatory have begun the deepest ever high-resolution radio imaging of the region around the Hubble Deep Field (HDF), the images originally captured by the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) in the mid 1990s.
Astronomers have obtained the best images ever of a star that has lost most of its material to a vampire companion.
Spearheaded by the University of Manchester's Jodrell Bank Observatory and funded by the Science and Technology Facilities Council, the e-MERLIN telescope will allow astronomers to address key questions relating to the origin and evolution of galaxies, stars and planets.
About 550 light-years from Earth, a star like our Sun is writhing in its death throes.
Europe is sending its first home-built receiver to the largest radio telescope array ever constructed, nestled in its permanent home in Chile.
A team of French astronomers has captured one of the sharpest color images ever made.
The PRIMA instrument of the ESO Very Large Telescope Interferometer (VLTI) recently saw "first light" at its new home atop Cerro Paranal in Chile.
Interferometry -- Interferometry is the applied science of combining two or more input points of a data type, such as optical, and combine these data to form a greater picture based on the combination of the two sources. This technique is the basis for proposed radio telescope arrays, which spread out upon a wide area of hundreds of miles, can together produce a picture with resolution similar or equivalent to a single telescope with the diameter of the combined spread of telescopes. The...
