Modelling of antennas and calibration of radio instruments
Friday June 6, 2014 - Meridian Room@ROB, 10h-16hSession Conveners: Christophe Marque and Herve Lamy
This one-day workshop is dedicated to the modelling of antenna and practical calibration of radio instruments used for scientific applications. We will have invited speakers to talk about the calibration of the most exciting current and future radio instruments/networks/radar such as LOFAR, Nancay radioheliograph and spectrograph, SKA, EISCAT_3D and AMISR. We will also have talks about the modelling/calibration of the BRAMS antennas, the parabolic antenna in Humain used for solar observations, and the GPS antennas used for GNSS. We finally plan some time for open discussions for potential collaborations.
