Synthesis Imaging in Radio Astronomy
Radio Astronomy Synthesis Imaging - TU Braunschweig
The textbook for the workshop will be the VLA workshop book from 1998, "Synthesis Imaging in Radio Astronomy II", published by the Astronomy Society of the Pacific. The ATNF will place a bulk order for 20 books, at US$49 each. If you are interested in purchasing the book, please indicate so on your registration form. We will advise you of the cost and where to pick it up (most likely they will be available at the start of the workshop).
in Synthesis Imaging in Radio Astronomy (1999)
The ATNF is holding a workshop devoted to the fundamentals of interferometry and synthesis imaging in radio astronomy, at the Compact Array (near Narrabri) during the week of 12-16 May 2003. The target audience is postgraduate students and other interested members of the astronomy community. No previous knowledge of synthesis imaging is assumed. There will be some bias towards techniques and astronomy using ATNF facilities, and a particular emphasis on millimetre interferometry.

Interferometry and Synthesis in Radio Astronomy by A
Payne-Scott made remarkable contributions to the theory of radio interferometry and collaborated with Joseph Pawsey in the first formulation of the concept of aperture synthesis in mid 1946. She was also an active collaborator with B.Y. Mills, Chris (W.N.) Christiansen, Alec Little and John Bolton. A well-known image of Payne-Scott along with Little and Christiansen is in Figure 1(Chris is to the right). This image was taken in about 1950 at the Potts Hill Reservoir field station in Sydney; Payne-Scott and Little developed the first swept lobe interferometer to follow the motions of solar radio bursts of Type II and Type IV at 100 MHz. Payne-Scott played the key role in elucidating the properties of the ubiquitous Type III solar radio bursts; from the short time delays observed (high frequencies observed initially, lower frequencies later), she inferred the slightly relativistic velocities of the exciters of these events in the solar corona.
