Arcetri Astrophysical Observatory

Radioastronomy group



The radio astronomical technology group designs and develops instrumentation, such as cryogenic front-ends and back-ends, for the Italian radio telescopes (Medicina, Noto, Sardinia Radio Telescope) together with INAF-IRA and INAF-OACa. It is also involved in many international facilities such as ALMA and SKA. These activities include the development, numerical analysis and experimental test  of antennas, optics and microwave components. Furthermore, the group is involved in the low frequency aperure array calibration and in digital signal processing firmware.
