INS5: Radio to sub-millimeter technology developments for receiver arrays
Bruno Maffei, G.Pisano, P.Wilkinson (University of Manchester)
With the present success of the latest millimeter to sub-mm space missions Herschel and Planck, there is great interest in technology developments for their successors. These future instruments will involve hundreds if not thousands of pixels. Multi-pixel receiver arrays are also being developed at lower frequency for the SKA, for the large European radio telescopes and the 500-m Chinese telescope FAST.
On the other hand, from tens of MHz to about 100 GHz, coherent phased array techniques can be used to increase the field of view of interferometer arrays or as elements in arrays (e.g. LOFAR). Even if the detector technologies might be different, there are many commonalities and potential synergies over this wide spectral range.
This session is dedicated to the state-of-the-art technology developed for present and future radio to sub-mm multi-pixel instrumentation. In particular, we welcome abstract proposals on:
- Multi-pixel instrumentation for future high sensitivity large-scale surveys: detector arrays, passive and active waveguide components, quasi-optical components and associated technologies.
