FARADAY Colloquium

FARADAY (Focal-plane Arrays for Radio Astronomy: Design, Access and
Yield) is a cooperatiove programme between the University of
Manchester's Joddrell Bank Observatory (UK), ASTRON (NL); Torun
University (P), Institute for Radio Astronomy, Bologna (I) and the
ATNF/CTIP under the aegis of the European Union's Framework Programme.
Its main aim is to produce prototypes of integrated focal plane arrays
to be installed on telescopes (Poland and Italy) and to study large (100
elements) arrays for future implementation. Central to it all is the
development of InP MMICs for these arrays (and hence the ATNF's
interest), and focal plane arrays for single dish and SKA development
(and hence CTIP's interest).
A general overview of the four aspects of the programme will be given
