BYU Students test new phased array feed receiver
Professors Warnick and Jeffs, along with students Richard Black, Junming Diao, Mark Ruzindana, and Mitchell Burnett, collaborated with the University of Massachusetts and the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in a test of a new phased array feed receiver for the Green Bank Telescope in West Virginia. The GBT is the world's largest fully steerable radio telescope. The facility is used by astrophysicists and astronomers to study exotic deep space phenomena and look into the universe's farthest reaches and distant past. The new receiver promises to extend the capability of the GBT by creating images more rapidly and at a higher frequency band than other receivers of its type.
